Teen Summer


Teen Summer is an 8-week program where girls will experience a summer of exploration, building character, and sisterhood! Girls will partake in discussions involving healthy choices, personal development, and leadership. They will have the opportunity to learn new skills and apply them through activities involving goal setting, networking, interviewing and resume writing. Activities will also include career exploration and college visits. Our focus is to inspire girls to take charge and prepare them for their future! You can be sure your daughter will make new friends, learn about herself, gain new interests and knowledge, and be surrounded by positive influences and people that believe in her.

We are currently seeking donations and sponsorships to help make this opportunity possible for local families. Click here to support our girls today!
