PROGRAM

Bertha De La Cruz from the School Based Wellness Center came to present on their Girls Empowerment Groups. (

  • The importance of this group is higher now more than ever as teens come back to school and ACEs (adverse childhood expedites) are at an all time high.
  • Their goal is to create spaces for girls to talk and be heard
  • These programs are showing a huge success and are in extremely high demand. Our club granted them a small grant earlier this year for snacks. Snacks are a great way to entice kids to attend the meetings.
