Guiding Girls to a Bright Future
As another amazing year comes to a close, we are reflecting on the many years The Friendship Club has provided service to girls at risk in Nevada County. This service has made significant and lasting change in our community and beyond.
Some may ask, “why does a fairly small community in the Northern California foothills care so much for a relatively small group of young women?” The answer is simple…because girls are uniquely capable of investing in their communities and making the world better.
Think of the individuals in your world who have touched your life – those people who shared a kind word, supported you through a difficult experience, inspired you to go places you never dreamed, encouraged and believed in you until you were ready to believe in yourself. Where would you be today without them? The Friendship Club serves as a place of encouragement, support, and inspiration that stirs young women on their path to self-discovery. Young women who don’t have those people in their lives and who, very often, have to face the world alone.
Together, we give them the tools and instill the hope they need to embrace their future and we thank you for believing in them.
“I didn’t see myself going anywhere in my life until The Friendship Club came into my life. Everyone at The Friendship Club pushed me to expect more out of myself.”

Your support has changed the course of her life, suddenly and powerfully toward a brighter future.

“What The Friendship Club gives to girls will carry through generations. The program is not a “quick fix”. It teaches them real-life skills that will help them become contributing members of their community.”
