Leadership Capital Region Class Project

The Leadership Capital Region (LCR) Class of 2024 is excited to announce Girls Inc. as the recipient of their class project. Girls Inc. founded as Schenectady Girls Club in 1937, now has two locations, serving 150 girls daily in Albany and Schenectady through afterschool programming. The class will renovate and create two spaces; the Cozy Cove & Teen Tech Room. The Cozy Cove will serve as wellness/mental health safe space and the Teen Tech room will be a multi-functional STEM room to help with career readiness. Both spaces are at their Schenectady location. The project will provide much needed renovations and upgrades to ensure the girls have access to new technology as well as welcoming space to decompress during challenging times. 

The LCR Class of 2024 is fundraising and accepting cash and in-kind donations from individuals and organizations to make this project possible.
