Character and Leadership Grants
The Empower Board of Directors is still developing our Character and Leadership Grant process. These grants will likely be available for the spring 2019 lacrosse season.
Empower’s goal will be to provide grants for Upper Valley girls lacrosse teams to bring in speakers that amplify “healthy voices” with a focus on development of character, leadership skills, team building, and the whole-player. Previously, Empower has successfully used several local speakers that include:
- Brooklyn Raney http://www.brooklynraney.com/
- Cindy Pierce: https://cindy-pierce.com/
- Nancy Turkington
- Rebecca Nash, DPT. Woodstock, VT.
Guest Coaching Grants

In the past, Empower has successfully brought in several coaches including the following:
