Really excited about this.
Project: “Girls in Real Life”
Who: Girls and young women (ages 13-25)
What: will discuss the social pressures they face because of the media/friends/family
When: ASAP- Spring 2012
Where: middle school#1: IS 141, Astoria, Queens – high school#1 : LaGuardia Arts High School, NY,NY – college#1: Hunter College, NY, NY
Why: because we feel that it is important to feel comfortable in your own skin
Plan of Action:
Head to each of these schools and take surveys, lead discussion groups, start clubs, etc. to speak about the many pressures young women may face.
The purpose of this is to help troubled/stressed girls and lead them in the right direction. Many times they might not have anyone to turn to and that could lead to eating disorders and life threatening outcomes.
Even though counseling is provided in most schools, it often helps to hear that you are not alone…
