The Beauty Within series is an 8-week program that teaches tolerance, kindness, how to embrace your uniqueness, and be proud of who you are. Girls will also explore the importance of having strong values, self-confidence, and how to be assertive in lieu of being passive or aggressive.
The I Am series is an 8-week program that encourages participants not to be swayed by negative peer or media pressures. Participants also take a close look at themselves, seeing themselves and the world around them more clearly. Through this series girls learn to develop talents, positive interests, strong character, be proud of who they are, and recognize their importance in the world
Goal Setting is an 8-week program that teaches the importance of planning, making positive choices, and always doing your best. We are all familiar with the saying " No one plans to fail, they fail to plan." This program helps students understand that success is a process that consists of both vision and action. Students will obtain strategies for self- motivation and learn how to apply it to every aspect of their lives.
The 8- Week sisterhood series teaches the importance of effective and respectful communication. This program also gives participants techniques for dealing with stress, dealing with emotions, and discourages relational aggressive behaviors. Participants will learn about respect, the benefits of demonstrating positives attitudes, maturity, self- esteem, and forgiveness.
This 12-week series provides students with opportunities to learn valuable sewing skills that could benefit them now or later in life. With home economics being pulled from schools, many students are not getting the chance to learn this skill. Sew Creative introduces participants to sewing, project planning, making presentations and creative thinking. At the end of the program, participants host a showcase to display their projects to guardians, faculty, and peers.
Individuality Through Art
This 12-week series helps students develop leadership skills and eliminates group think. Students learn project planning, presentations skills and public speaking through the art of clothing design. Students will enjoy designing their own clothing line representing themselves and their interests. Participants present their design projects to guardians, faculty, and peers during an "Individuality Celebration" at the end of the program. Students will demonstrate what skills they developed in leadership, self-esteem, and project planning. This program also encourages positive decision- making through artistic expression.
