Key Program Information
Program Overview-Girls Aiming Towards Positivity" is a unique mentoring program designed to instill a positive mindset in girls in grades 8th-11th. Our program focuses on leadership, public speaking, respect, and confidence-building activities. We've developed our curriculum through three methods: parent surveys, girls' feedback/business meetings, and program director observation, ensuring that the core values taught at home, such as respect, self-love, and positivity, are reinforced. By giving girls a voice and teaching them the steps to be confident, we've successfully served over 300 girls in South Atlanta over the past 10 years.
Sample Activities- Cooking Class, Cupcakes and Conversations, Team Building, Game Night, Debate Classes.
