Connect Our Community
We make a concerted effort to brings girls together from all over our community. Girls are nominated by school counselors as rising fifth graders and remain in their small group for the next eight years, until high school graduation. Although many of our girls move and change schools for various reasons, the StrongHER TogetHER group is not impacted by this as we look to provide a steady, safe place for the girls, no matter where they are.
Today StrongHER TogetHER girls come from 22 elementary and middle schools in the area and youth representatives are from 6 high schools. As we teach girls the importance of sticking together, no matter how different they are, we believe the first step is broad community outreach.
