MVP of the Week: Girls on Track
I am a big fan of Girls on Track and their mission “to foster important life skills in girls, through participation in roller derby as skaters and decision makers.” I mean, who wouldn’t be?
They just launched their first round of funding for organizations and programs:
Programs or special events with a specific focus on awareness of and access to roller derby for teen girls.
Equipment for roller derby that would be available on a long-term basis to allow access to roller derby for teen girls.
You can apply from anywhere in the world. We give grants to organizations everywhere in the derby world!
