IMPACT 100 Owensboro Next Generation   

Next Generation is a new IMPACT 100 group for high school girls currently in the 12th grade (graduating in 2017) or who will be in grades 8-12 in the 2017-2018 school year.

The program is designed to:

  • Empower young women through mentoring with Impact 100 members.
  • Create a sense of community among the young women through engagement with local nonprofits.
  • Create a philanthropic spirit of giving back to the community with both time and money.

Come join high school youth in the Owensboro area as we embark on a new grant-making initiative created just for young women in our community!
