Always #EndPeriodPoverty Program
Do you work with girls (10-16 years old) as part of an afterschool program? Do their periods prevent them from participating in these programs?
Apply now for the Always #EndPeriodPoverty Program
You could receive a year supply of period products for your
female participants and support for your team!
Nearly 1 in 5 American girls have either left school early or missed school entirely because they did not have access to the products they needed to manage their period. But it’s not just school they are forced to miss. For many, not having access to the products they need also forces them to miss out on the activities they love. Yet, participating in afterschool activities helps girls learn new skills, gain new experiences and ultimately build their confidence.
Always wants to help #EndPeriodPoverty by making sure that girls have the products, and support they need to stay in the activities they love and to Live #LikeAGirl.
Always and America's Promise Alliance are looking for partners in all 50 states that run afterschool activity programs for girls, and whose members may have difficulty getting access to period products.
America’s Promise is proud to be working with Always to help identify 50 organizations in 50 States to be the beneficiaries of this program.
In addition to donating products and confidence-boosting SWAG to participating programs, Always will host a webinar for leaders from selected programs. The webinar will be led by a puberty and confidence expert from Always. It will provide tips, tricks and coaching to help program leaders understand how to discuss periods and puberty, and how to help the girls under their care build and maintain confidence. Each program will also receive printed materials from the Always Puberty & Confidence Curriculum.
To be eligible for the program, organizations must meet the following criteria:
- Provide an afterschool activity for girls (e.g. school club, sports team, music group, etc.).
- Members should include at least 12 participants of puberty aged girls (10-16) who may have difficulty getting access to period products.
- Must commit to at least one leader attending a one-hour webinar.
- Must commit to sharing feedback, impact stories and photos (where possible) for promotional use by America’s Promise Alliance and Always.
