The next generation of amazing role models, caring supporters and fearless leaders.
The Greatest Investment (“TGI”) camp was created to empower the next generation of female leaders by challenging female professionals, business owners, community leaders and volunteers to take an active role in shaping the life of a future female leader.
Until TGI, there were no summer camps in Orlando that focused on developing strong, confident and fierce female leaders. In these tough economic times when community programs are being cut and parents do not have the funds to send their kids to summer camps, TGI sees Orlando’s kids, especially vulnerable teenage girls, being left unsupervised to learn essential life lessons from negative reality tv shows or misguided friends. TGI has filled this void by stepping up to create an educational, enriching and fun summer for 30 Orlando girls.
The mission of the camp is to inspire a conversion of heart and purposeful action by directing teenage girls to a better future by exposure to positive new areas and new possibilities.
This is why TGI is so essential! The volunteers at the camp are dedicated to spending the time, sharing lessons and expanding the experiences of the teenage girls in the camp to properly equip them for the challenges that they will face in their daily lives. The Greatest Investment is a free four-week camp tailored to 11-year old to 18-year old at-risk girls, predominantly from the Parramore and Pine Hills areas of Orlando. The camp focuses on positively shaping the girls’ self-esteem and character, developing their interpersonal skills, exposing them to life skills such as financial literacy, goal-setting, health and nutrition, career building and community development. The camp teaches the girls to expand their interests and share their talents by shadowing business and community leaders. The camp provides a nurturing environment for the girls to learn more about who they are, how to deal with the challenges that they may be facing at home, at school and in their communities, and creating the foundation and values to withstand the many temptations that they face as teenage girls. The camp includes individual and group counseling sessions, peer discussions about hot topics, guest speakers, interactive activities and exciting field trips.
