Be Bold

an Empowerment Group for Girls in 5th and 6th Grade

Beginning in January Afterschool, 3:30 to 5:30 pm

The YWCA of Central Maine is offering an 8 week empowerment program for girls in 5th and 6th grade called Be Bold. Be Bold will prepare girls for a lifetime of self-respect and healthy living. The group will serve as a safe and respectful place for participants to learn to celebrate themselves by building self esteem and improving their emotional and physical health. Each session will be led by young women who will guide and mentor the girls through a fun and thought-provoking curriculum.

School bus transportation is provided from Farwell, Geiger, McMahon and Montello schools to the YWCA at 130 East Avenue, Lewiston. Caregivers will pick up participants at 5:30 pm at the YWCA of Central Maine.
