With a mentor’s guidance and a wealth of informational resources, each student will research one aspect of the theme in focus, and creatively use their talents to present the lessons through a video, dance, song, writing, art, or drama.
Passion Project: Girls will brainstorm and be guided with tools to create their own passion project that solves a problem and impact other people’s lives in a positive way. Girls will discover their passions and how to turn it into action to make the world a better place.
