Our workshops are a fun and safe space for girls from 2nd to 8th grade to come together and focus on developing the 3 C's: Confidence, Creativity and Compassion

Why Join our Workshops?

With the support of volunteers and mentors from local high schools within our community, the girls are going to stretch their imaginations in workshops and learn to think bigger than themselves. For example, an activity that asks the girls: As a team, come up with a device that would save the world, with no limitations! Then present your device explaining how it would save the world, why you chose it, how much it would cost and why it would be that price. This activity allows the girls to get as creative as they want, learn how to work as a team, learn how to listen to other's opinions, it gets them thinking about life outside of their community, it will help them address the issues in their communities with a problem solving mindset - and much more!

We are also planning on bringing in some community service groups and hoping to meet some local Civil Servants, such as Mayors and Town Council Members to give the girls and understanding of what it takes to make their towns a safe and fun place to live, learn about their education and career path and hopefully ignite inspiration!

Being understanding of working families busy schedules and other commitment conflicts, workshops will be held once a month.
