Our workshops are a fun and safe space for girls from 2nd to 7th 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. We create a safe environment were everyone is heard, their opinion matters and girls can express themselves to build confidence. 

We are also bring in guest speakers and provide community service opportunities to give the girls an understanding of what it takes to make their towns a safe and fun place to live, become more civically and socially aware and hopefully ignite inspiration!

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

Recurring Schedule

The first Friday of every month* - 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM - Bishops Gate, Mt. Laurel
