(Girls Reaching Optimal Wellness) series is designed to enhance the quality of life for black girls. The program is customize specifically with measurable outcomes to both tell stories of and build statistics of success.
The program will meet up to twice weekly in (4) eight-week sessions for a total of 32 weeks in 2022. This scheduling will allow (40) girls and young women ages 11 – 22 years to complete the program. Guest speakers of various empowerment sessions will be scheduled throughout the eight weeks, along with performing arts training by professional artists that will incorporate kinesthetic learning and cultural significance. Incentives will be earned weekly. A total wellness journal will encourage documentation for individual success stories, in addition to self-esteem building workbooks.
