Gals on the Go Project is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization established by Gals Institute. The project's mission is to improve the social and emotional well-being of children and adolescents through prevention and resiliency building workshops and other programs. Our fun and interactive workshops focus on topics such as healthy relationships, resiliency building, effective coping strategies, confidence boosting, calming anxiety, and many others. Gals on the Go Project events will be led by trained licensed clinicians through Gals Institute LLC. "I Am, I Can, I Will" and "Calm, Cool, Capable" are among two of our trademarked workshops.
Funds raised will be used to offer individual scholarships to those who can't afford mental health support and for schools and organizations who do not have funds in their budgets to provide socio-emotional education. Since our inception in 2018, Gals on the Go Project has reached more than 1000 boys and girls in Waukesha County through our resiliency-based workshops. Our supporter believe that Prevention IS Key.
