The primary objective of this ongoing program is to educate and mentor girls of color between the in middle school grades 7, 8 and 9 by providing them the necessary tools to success relative to their academic and personal lives. The focus of the day will be on adopting healthy habits to create successful, healthy lifestyles.
Real World Real Girls activities are scheduled throughout the year and the girls are invited to play, talk, learn, study or just interact with one another and members of the Circle City Links. Activities are planned with a sensitivity to the cultural, mind, body and spiritual needs of minority teenage girls. Each year’s activities culminates with the Real World Real Girls conference, an interactive experience that features various workshops, seminars and activities. In 2017, the conference is being specially designed for middle school girls.
Why is Real World Real Girls important? Research shows that teens who engage in positive social and academic activities thrive more than their peers who lack such opportunities. When teens have mentors – specifically people they can relate to – their chances for success in life are even greater. Through its programming, Real World Real Girls helps enrich the lives of local girls – immediately impacting them while also laying a foundation for future success well into adulthood.
Why you should help. Contributing to Real World Real Girls helps ensure that hundreds of young girls have a fair shot at education, exposure and mentorship – regardless of their individual backgrounds. Your contribution says “you’re worth it” to young ladies and the communities they represent. Sponsors will be recognized on all promotional and marketing items as well as verbally during the annual conference.
