Lower East Side Girls Club

BlogHer Original Post


I got an email from Dave Pentecost asking if me if I was the same Beth Kanter (note that article is like 5 years old! In Internet years, I was still playing with dolls ...) and if I had any advice on credit card vendors that are nonprofit friendly.   (I don't track this stuff closely anymore, but pointed him to a few other sources.)

Dave was asking for his wife whose heart and brain child is the entrepreneurial program of the Lower Eastside Girls Club.  (The bakery.)   Dave's sig line gave me an instant flash of what's he up to lately:

Technology Director, Lower Eastside Girls Club Ex-Television hack, podcaster, Maya maniac Blog for girls cheerleader

There is a long-running blog on the site too, with girls podcasting coming soon.  Oh, it makes me miss my computer club mentor days so much ... if only there were ten days a week!

I love these opportunities to mentor girls and young women to express themselves with technology. Maybe ... as part of this year's blogher, we can create some sort of online mentoring program.
