Girls Play L.A. encourages girls to get involved in sports and fitness activities, by offering improved programming at parks where girls sports and fitness participation is low. We are raising funds to help Girls Play L.A. meet a bold target by the end of 2018: 40% participation by girls in the City’s Recreation and Parks sports and fitness programs.
Girls Fire Camp is a new 2-day program that pairs girls ages 14-18 with active duty LAFD female firefighters and cadets for hands-on activities with firefighting tools, equipment, and personal protective gear. We are hosting our second camp this spring with future camps in their planning stages. With your support, we will expose greater numbers of girls to a career in public service and ultimately grow the ranks of women in the LAFD.
