An Announcement from GWG BoD

An Announcement from GWG BoD

Thank you for your understanding and support as GWG continues to evolve!  GWG does not exist or succeed without you. We want nothing more than to remain to be the organization that you’ve grown to lean on.

With that in mind, we wanted to send a personal message to all our Girls With Guts to let you know that we will not be hosting an in-person retreat this year, but we’re planning other exciting events for 2018.

We aren’t happy to announce this news, but there were a few things leading up to this decision. With a major change in leadership, and a lack of training and ramp up, the four of us had a lot to take on and quickly. We also needed time to digest the change in leadership and make some long-term decisions on how we wanted to move the organization forward to better serve you.

We had to reevaluate, reprioritize, and reassess the mission of Girls With Guts before rushing into hosting a retreat that was poorly planned. We want our next in-person event to go off without a hitch, and be worth your time and money. If we committed to doing an in-person retreat in 2018, we believe we wouldn’t deliver the kind of event you’ve come to know and expect from us.

In the meantime, we are going to focus on making our smaller programming stronger and build up our volunteer base. So now is the time to check out our open volunteer opportunities and if you have any ideas, feedback or thoughts on how to serve you better, please email us at

We apologize if this hurts you, as it wasn’t our intention. We wish we would’ve been better setup for success, but, we weren’t. We will make an announcement later about an upcoming event for everyone to connect for this year.

So with that said, keep your eyes peeled for an announcement about an in-person retreat in 2019. We know this will be bigger and better than ever.
