Our program serves only 25 girls at any given time. Girls are able to stay in our program until they finish high school
We have group activities every other Saturday which includes education, social activities, community service. We offer tutoring on Saturdays for girls who are in the program.
Recently we started an outreach initiative in one of the local Middle Schools where we go every 2 weeks to serve girls who have been designated as particularly high risk.
Our girls are also paired with a mentor who makes at least a one year commitment to the program.
