Goal 5. Gender Equality

Organization name: Seed Project

Project description:
At SEED, we understand that young women often do not have access to quality sports programming as their male counterparts, and are frequently not encouraged from a young age to achieve the same student-athlete goals as boys. To further our commitment to young women and the education of our male students of the importance of gender equality, we launched a Women’s Empowerment department for our students, staff and families.
