Last week at Go Girls! we had a guest speaker present on a very important topic: reproductive health. We spoke about the physical, emotional, and hormonal changes that are a part of adolescence. We answered lots of questions, which is just another reason to discuss these very important topics that are a part of growing up!
Today is International Women’s Day. Today we celebrate all of the girls, teenagers, and women that inspire us every day. We believe in your strength and determination to make a change in our world.
We began our Go Girls program last week. First, we did an icebreaker so the girls could get to know one another a little bit better. After, we continued with establishing goals for the year.
A special thank you to Brenda, the teacher of Go Girls this year!
