The Girls Inc after school program at TWYLS-Bronx began this week and got off to a great start. Through our kick-off event Girlopolis, girls dove right in with community-building games, design challenges and speed mentoring with our specialists through our kick-off event. The highlight of our first week: watching the girls update fairy tales like Cinderella and the Little Mermaid into empowerment stories where instead of waiting to be saved or competing against each other, girls take control of their own lives and band together. In the Girls Inc. remix, Sleeping Beauty is no longer dozing her life away while waiting for Prince Charming's kiss. Instead she and her fellow sheroes from other fairy tales infiltrate a dating "reality" TV show to expose it for it's concocted storyline!
There is still space in the Girls Inc after school program and time to enroll. You would need to submit the registration forms no later Friday, October 2nd and attend the mandatory parent orientation on the Back to School Night scheduled for Tuesday, September 29th.
