RESILIENT GIRLS BOOK CLUB (grades 2 – 3; 4 – 5; and 7 – 8)
Girls face many challenges that can thwart their ability to develop a strong, honest voice to express who they are. This “girl & grown-up” book group will read books together and use them as a “starting point for open and honest dialogue.” This group will be lead by Karen Mook. [Visit girlsleadership.org for more information on the goals and resources provided by this program.]
