GirlPower! A Bridge to Empowerment: A Workshop for Girls 11-13

Be together with other girls in a fun and supportive environment!  Become part of a weekly tribe of girls who will have a chance to get to know each other outside the classroom, sports and other structured activities. As girls approach the teen years, often their sense of self diminishes in order to become part of the intense social dynamics of the middle school years. For three consecutive weeks, girls will bond over expressive movement, lively circle discussion and honest journaling with a different theme each week relevant to their ages.  Art and creative projects round out the multidimensional experience.   Girls will discover bonds with each other through connection and acceptance.
