The Faces of Generation WOW

Last Wednesday, we welcomed nearly 300 high school girls and 110 women mentors to engage in thought provoking conversation and activities focused on “The Positive and the Possible.”  Generation WOW–in its second year here in Jacksonville–is a day filled with inspiration and enthusiasm including the signature event, the GERALDINE Mentor Walk, an opportunity for girls to build intergenerational connections and create a lifelong mentor network.

As Donna Orender stated in her recent blog, “Notice we use the word ‘lifelong’.  You see, this isn’t about a one-day event, it’s about creating an experience that will forge relationships, inspire dreams and deliver results that will enhance lives.”

Want to feel some of that inspiration and enthusiasm?  Checkout these great images from Generation WOW 2014:
