What's Included


Journey is a specially designed leadership development program for young women entering 7th and 8th grade from Howard County, and is made possible by a grant from the
"Women's Giving Circle of Howard County"


At this unique program, each student identifies her own leadership skills, strengths, and weaknesses in a supportive and fun environment, which fosters increased self-esteem and confidence. This program is tailored to meet the needs and experiences of girls in middle and high school. Graduates of Journey are equipped with leadership skills to enhance their schools and communities. Journey Program Components Include: *Workshops on empowerment and motivation, communication, decision making skills, group dynamics, self-awareness, goal setting, and conflict resolution *Small and large group projects for girls to apply and get feedback on their leadership and interpersonal skills *One-on-one interactions between staff and girls to address specific areas of growth for the individual and identify an action plan for post-site implementation *Recreational activities such as team building games and activities, including a Confidence Course
