Gina's Story

Gina Callirgos has a vision to provide mentoring programs to children who are in foster care and equip them with the tools they need to be independent once they age out of the system.  Baltimore Collegetown LeaderShape guided her through the goal setting process and gave her a support system of like-minded students. She is committed to creating change by empowering children in the foster care system to develop the skills necessary to make a successful transition into independence.  

Gina decided to apply for Baltimore Collegetown LeaderShape because she wanted guidance finding her passion.  Through the experience she not only established a course for her vision, but was also able to incorporate the new perspectives of her fellow participants.  “Collegetown Leadershape has inspired me to visualize my goals and provided a path to pursue them.”
