Let's Go South Bay, an inspiring non-profit organization led by dedicated women, is paving the way for young girls to conquer challenges and unlock their potential. By offering a range of programs, recreational spaces, and free camps throughout the southern region of San Diego County, this remarkable initiative is creating opportunities for personal growth and empowerment.

The organization's inaugural event, an empowering sports camp held at Southwestern College, saw over 50 young participants engage in athletic activities without any financial burden.

Natalie, one of the girls who attended the camp, said, "Knowing that professionals were there with us truly inspired me to aspire to their greatness someday."

Let's Go South Bay is committed to providing girls with access to parks and sports facilities, aiming to instill a sense of empowerment and promote their overall well-being.

"Typically, these camps come with a price tag of $300, $400, even $500 per week. However, through the generous contributions of professional soccer player Alex Morgan and San Diego County Supervisor Nora Vargas, we have turned this vision into a reality. With immense gratitude, we are proud to announce that we now have a remarkable cohort of 53 talented players, hailing from the vibrant South Bay region of Chula Vista. Our focus goes beyond the present moment as we impart valuable skills and knowledge, ensuring these girls step into a future filled with empowerment and limitless possibilities," said Carolina Soto, a dedicated member of the Let's Go South Bay organization.

The inaugural Girls' Soccer Empowerment Camp catered to girls aged 13 to 15.

During the event, they learned the fundamental aspects of soccer as well as the importance of mental health.

"We selected the young girls through an application process where we sought out those who would benefit from additional financial resources to become skilled soccer players. Training is essential, but what truly guided our selection was our belief in their potential to become future leaders. That's why we chose these 53 girls, knowing that they will emerge from this camp stronger and more confident," emphasized Carolina Soto, who is also a soccer coach at Southwestern College.

The event witnessed the presence of seasoned professionals and local officials, including players from San Diego Wave FC, representatives from San Diego State University, and County Supervisor Nora Vargas.

Their participation further underscored the collective commitment to empowering the younger generation and creating a brighter future for Southern California.
