Girl Power

Girl Power is a great opportunity for middle school girls every spring. Girl Power is part of the US Department of Health and Human Services, “Safe Passages” initiative designed to support children through the stormy years of adolescence.  The Girl Power campaign is unique because it addresses the important issues in girls’ lives today, with an overall goal of increasing self-esteem and positive life choices by instilling self-confidence and resilience in young women.

This leadership academy is an exciting two-day event designed to teach young women, grades 6 through 8, how to address issues within themselves, their schools and their communities.  Girl Power workshops and small groups will include: resolving conflict, bullying, self-esteem, self defense, substance use prevention and effective communication. These topics will be approached in a fun, open atmosphere.
