It’s why she recently helped launch a new statewide initiative, Voices for Florida Girls, designed to bring to the forefront and find solutions for issues that inhibit at-risk girls from reaching their potential.In June she told her childhood story at the kickoff, which brought together about 50 area civic and business leaders. They are now spreading the word about the initiative via networking and their Facebook pages, among other things.The next step is to get people to join the process, in which they will first learn the obstacles that face girls today and the “best practices” intervention programs available to help them, said Linda Alexionok. She is director of Voices for Florida, the nonprofit leading the charge, and executive director of The Children’s Campaign, a Florida watchdog group.After the “know” period, residents will share the information they learned with their community, civic and church groups; help the nonprofit get area-wide discussions going about programs and funding; and provide grassroots leadership to get them implemented, Alexionok said.At-risk girls are the focus because 33 percent of the referrals to the juvenile justice system are girls, but there is a “disparity of services” for them, with only 5 percent of resources directed to their needs, Alexionok said Continue reading
