Gab…that’s all we need to learn to do as women, right? Well the five young ladies of the G.A.B. program (Girls At Their Best) learned that there is more to being a proper and well-rounded young lady than just talking.
With a starting date of April 30th and after six different sessions that happened once each week, the young girls of this program became respectable ladies in a crash course of learning and fun.
Each of the six weekly sessions focused on a different topic that would be important for these young girls to know. With the help of some mature female community members who were willing to donate their time to help educate these girls, the program was a success. Some of the learning topics included fashions of the past, healthy cooking and snacking, improving body image and self-esteem, pilates, manners and etiquette, and personal hygiene.
Some of the area businesses and people that donated their time to this program include Dr. Jasia Steinmetz from UWSP, Cathy Graham – a school nurse, Studio B Pilates with Pam Luedtke, and 7th Heaven Salon. The final session was a celebration of afternoon tea with the young girls and community women gathering together at Michelle’s Restaurant.
This was an excellent learning opportunity for each of these girls as the surely took some good points out of each of these sessions to help them become more well-rounded and respectable young girls. At the Boys & Girls Club, we are always looking to open new doors of opportunities for our Club members.
