We Provide A Supportive Structured Setting
In both group and individual settings, young women are offered mentoring & study skills/techniques. As family life, peer pressure & educational expectations become more of a challenge for young women, they may be looking for personalized assistance with their studies & life decisions. The opportunity to explore ever changing career options made available is part of what Horizons4Girls works to do. Giving the young women a variety of speakers, presenters & potential role models helps them to develop their own personal goals.
Learned by creating a household budget, helping in community gardens and unleashing creativity in the kitchen, learning about various cultures, as well as experiencing job shadowing opportunities.
Creativity In So Many Ways
Whether art, music, or writing, there are many opportunities for expression. Very often this is a venue to express feelings & views in a safe and non-threatening way. This gives the young women an opportunity to discover themselves and their interests.
Providing community service far & wide is a very rewarding, educational experience. Every month the young women are out as a group, discovering ways they can give back to their neighborhoods. Whether delivering cookies to residents of nursing homes or helping trim the hooves of animals at a local hobby farm, they learn more about their communities and themselves.
