Initiative For Girls

Program Description

The Initiative For Girls is a program designed specifically for youth ages 11-17. The program focuses on health, safety, leadership development and peer education. The Initiative For Girls offers youth opportunities to talk with college students and experts in the community; learn about health and safety issues as they pertain to girls; recognize and build upon their talents and assets; and practice leadership skills by planning and leading girl-centered activities and serving as peer educators.

The Initiative For Girls puts out a calendar listing the upcoming schedule. The group meets bi-weekly during the school year and plans special projects and activities in the summer.

The Initiative For Girls is sponsored through grants from the United Way of Knox County and the Galesburg Community Foundation. The program is facilitated by Program Director, Ashley German-Cooper. For more information, call Ashley at 309-343-6162.
