Making Girls Stronger
The Maya Angelou Project is program that runs during the spring to provide a structured support and literary program for 10-12 year-old girls that will enable them to share their experiences in a safe, healthy environment through role playing, journal writing, drama, dance, art, and a reading and writing group. All activities will address a theme such as, Being A Girl, Trusting Yourself, Friendships, Body Image, Conflict Resolution and more.
We believe that when girls voice their ideas and opinions, it strengthens their confidence and self esteem and encourages them to express themselves more fully. It also gives them greater awareness of their options and strengthens their ability to make choices that are consistent with their values, interests and talents.
Our goals for the program are to create a comfortable, safe environment, provide support for the girls through positive conversations, increase their involvement within the community, improve their communication and leadership skills, teamwork, life-long learning and goal setting. Of course, snacks will be provided to the participants.
