Hooray! This project is fully funded

Growing from girls to women! I currently teach science in Florida, and among being a teacher I am also a club sponsor. The club is for junior and senior females in high school. The young women are all preparing for college and the club is designed to assist them in their preparation. The goal of the club is to grow mentally, and emotional to get ready for the real world".

"I'm mean and say what I want, but I don't like myself." The girls in our club all face obstacles, both in school and their personal lives. The club is meant to give them strength. The book,Letters to a Young Sister, lets the girls know that they are not alone in their struggles. Other girls are facing the same obstacles and have the same questions.

Along with schedules speakers, community service, and journals; the book will reinforce the efforts of the club.

The clubs motto is: "The decisions you make today determine the life you lead tomorrow". Help these girls make the best decisions, so that they can have a successful tomorrow.
