Girls and Boys Project

The Girls’ Project and Boys’ Project are after school activities available to all 5th grade girls and boys. The girls and boys meet in gender specific groups once a week for two hours to address issues specific to their gender in a safe space. The daily activities are designed to have the girls and boys explore their identities, think creatively, express themselves freely, resolve conflicts, discuss bullying, their ever changing bodies and body image. The goal of the program is to empower the girls and boys and strengthen self esteem. The project starts in the fall and continues through the spring.

The Girls Project and Boys Project meet approximately 25 times throughout the year. The 5th grade girls and boys will receive more information and a form to sign up for the project in September.
