Be a Friend First
Volunteers needed to help facilitate Be a Friend First (BFF) program to select middle schools across the council.
When a girl is bullied, she feels alone. When a girl sees someone else being bullied, she feels helpless. You have the power to change this!  GSNETX is pleased to announce our continued partnership with Metlife and GSUSA to help combat the issues girls face with bullying. For additional information contact Zakiyyah Kitab at or 972.349.2487.
