Expanding Opportunities for Girls On and Off the Ice
The Vera and Joseph Dresner Foundation awarded Figure Skating in Detroit $50,000 over two years to increase opportunities for girls to engage in year-round enrichment opportunities.
The expanded afterschool and summer programming will combine sports with scaffolded educational support and leadership development. Through skating instruction, educational workshops and additional enrichment activities, the on- and off-the-ice activities will improve student academics, encourage active lifestyles, and strengthen leadership skills.
