Cool Girls is proud to announce our largest class of Cool Scholars who will receive scholarships totaling over $15,000 to include academic and technology awards. Seven of our Cool Girl participants are either beginning or continuing on their journey to pursue higher education in degrees such as: Nursing, Public Health, Psychology and Music Education. We are extremely proud of the steps these young women have taken to be examples of self-empowerment.
Our annual Pregnancy Prevention Workshop was a huge success with over 120 girls and their parents joining us at Clark Atlanta University. This year’s theme, BE YOU (-tiful) focused on developing essential life-skills to boost self-esteem, encourage healthy relationships and feel good about their bodies.
The day ended with the announcement of our 2014 Girl Power Award winners. Ten very special girls Cool Girls were recognized for their outstanding leadership through service.
A very Cool Thanks is extended to our partners and presenters including: The Junior League of Atlanta, Clark Atlanta University, Turner Broadcasting Systems, The National Sales Network, Deborah Levich, and Michelle Youngblood.
Our Cool Girls are having a BLAST doing what they do best…using TECHNOLOGY! During our Girls Club, participants explore the wide world of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). Our middle school girls enjoy a partnership with Girl Genius Productions to promote Digital Citizenship.
Interactive workshops include topics on email etiquette, social networking, text messaging, and cyber safety. Through the use of videos, smartphones, and small group discussions, Cool Girls gain valuable skills on how to navigate social platforms like Instagram, Kik and Snapchat responsibly. Though these conversations can be challenging, our girls are learning to be accountable for what they post and who they tweet.
