Teen Women's Leadership In the Arts Project

Over the course of the years we have been asked by several families if we could facilitate a leadership circle for teens. We are excited to announce that we are launching a leadership circle for teen girls this Winter. We will meet at our space for 1.5 hours a week. There will be 1 female mentor present at all times, but our goal is that this will be teen centered and teen lead.

We believe it is of utmost importance for teens to have a place where they feel heard, are accepted for who they are, are supported by their peers and community and feel powerful. Each semester the group will decide on one art based leadership project to put forth into the community. One idea someone had was writing and publishing a zine with media distribution. Girls Rock will support the teens in their en devour and help fund their projects. We will have two groups; a high school group and a jr. high group. Register Below. We do ask that if you participate you commit to 80 % of the meetings for the semester. Can't wait to get started.
