Finding self-esteem, improving a grade-point average, rejecting drugs and alcohol, choosing abstinence, connecting with a mentor, discovering untapped talents — these are some of the experiences girls have when they take part in our Prevention Program. These experiences can happen in a summer, during the course of a school year (through after-school workshops, study groups and girls' clubs) or across the span of several years as girls mature from five to 18 years of age, building their characters on a foundation of positive choices.
Intervention and Out-Reach
Outreach serves as a lifeline to many young women seeking to remove themselves from situations and activities that threaten their physical and mental well-being, their futures, and their lives. Staff and volunteers will encounter young women on the streets, in all seasons, during daylight and after dark, providing harm-reduction kits, connections to community resources and other safe places — links to life-saving and support services.
Service Learning is a method of teaching through which students apply their academic skills and knowledge to address real-life needs in their own communities. Service Learning provides a compelling reason to learn, teaches the skills of civic participation and develops an ethic of service and civic responsibility. Service learning increases motivation and retention of academic skills as specific learning goals are tied to community needs. By solving real problems and addressing real needs, students learn to apply classroom learning to a real world context. At the same time, students provide valuable services to schools and communities. Students will participate in a Pen Pal Program where they write to students at different WCPS and learn the experiences of other girls and become friends with girls like them at different schools.
Participants will be able to participate in Dance classes (lyrical, jazz, ballet, tap, hip-hop and gymnastics) at Dancin' Daze in Mount Olive sponsored by PrimaDonna, Inc. All fees, clothing and shoes will be purchased for them. This will allow students to involve themselves in activities that will broaden their horizons and enhance their lives. We will also offer acting classes through StageStruck at Paramount Theater in Goldsboro free of charge. Singing lessons will be offered by Executive Director.
