Background on the 2020 PRo Bono Nonprofit
Between February and April, 22 local nonprofits applied for the 2020 PRo Bono Project. After careful evaluation, a committee of ten NAPRCA members selected Girls Inc. of Huntsville to be the 2020 PRo Bono Project recipient. Girls Inc. of Huntsville provides year-round programming to girls in grades K-8th, many of whom start out at a socioeconomic disadvantage. Most participants reside in households with annual incomes under $30,000. Program focus areas include academic enrichment and support, STEM opportunity exposure, leadership development, career exploration, healthy living and life skill instruction. Girls Inc. works to inspire all girls to be strong, smart and bold.
