Over the last few years, I’ve been very passionate about sharing community events in our city that foster positive self-esteem, confidence and empowerment for girls.
We are so fortunate to have such a diverse range of programs, and events for pre-adolescent, adolescent girls and their caregivers in our community!
Below is a list of empowering events for girls this Fall to help them cultivate confidence, connection, and navigate the complicated adolescent years.
I`ve experienced each of these events first-hand either as a facilitator, speaker, and volunteer and highly recommend them to anyone who has daughters or works with girls.
Join Sole Girls Founder Ashley Wiles for an interactive afternoon of fun, empowerment, and physical activity.
Spend this special day connecting with your daughter and nurturing your bond alongside other moms and daughters in the community.
In addition, there will be speakers, prizes, yoga and yummy sole-delicious treats!
Topics include Physical Activities, Self Love, Gratitude and Goal Setting!
This event is for mothers and daughters but also aunts, grandmothers, and friends are more than welcome!
