Sam Terry ’04 is part of the leadership team for AGE UP, All Girl Everything Ultimate Program, a South Seattle-based girls’ leadership and empowerment program that brings together middle school and high school aged girls with world-class female athletes. AGE UP uses the positive influence of Ultimate Frisbee to engage girls in long-term intentional work, developing critical awareness, leadership skills, and positive identity. Just wrapping up their second year, AGE UP grew out of the rapid expansion of youth Ultimate in South Seattle and is dedicated to working with low-income girls of color from that community.
The group is taking part in GOOD’s “GOOD Summer” contest, an online voting contest for a $5,000 grant. At post time, AGE UP was near the top of the pile, fourth in a field of 146 project ideas. Voting closes today at 12:00 noon PDT.
