Girls Only Youth Lock-In
March 30, 2018 @ 6:00 PM - 11:59 PM
Girl power rules the day during the Youth Center’s Girls Only Lock-in! On Friday, 30 March from 6 p.m. – midnight, join us in conjunction with SMART Girls for a night where we celebrate our girls with dreams who will one day become women with vision. We’ll play games, learn life skills, make crafts, have fun with nail/makeup “makeovers”, and participate in a variety of “Girl Talk” sessions, where we discuss issues affecting young ladies today, such as friends, school, personal hygiene practices, harassment and more. Then, bring your blankets and pillows, because we’ll be watching the movie “Cadet Kelly”! Food and snacks are provided. This event is $5.00 and open to girls between the ages of 9 – 18. Please register no later than 23 March by calling the Youth Center at (316) 759-4070.
SMART Girls is a small-group health, fitness, prevention/education and self-esteem enhancement program designed to meet the developmental needs of girls in three age groups, spanning ages 8 to 18. Through dynamic sessions, participatory activities, field trips and mentoring opportunities with adult women, Club girls explore their own and societal attitudes and values as they build skills for eating right, staying physically fit, getting good health care and developing positive relationships with peers and adults.
