Program Description: 

This program will encourage girls from various backgrounds and social cliques to come together in a safe place; talk about important life topics; and to break down social barriers; to encourage girls to embrace who they are and find their inner strength to spread kindness; to empower them to be a part of a supportive environment or 'sisterhood' amongst themselves and their friends.
