I want to create a safe space for girls ages 10-18 to feel safe where they can express their feelings and ideas without reprimand or judgement. I want to build a more positive community and plan more volunteer opportunities as individuals and as a group. I want us all to be more open to ideas and to be more including for girls who are struggling with self esteem and friendships. Often working alongside rescue animals,reading to shelter cats and caring compassionate people,it has been proven to reduce stress,aid in depression and boost self esteem . Creating volunteer opportunities will help girls like myself realize their potential,develop skills,empowerment and become more self aware of actions, words and their impact. It is my hope to encourage female freindships,help focus on our future and introduce new ideas and more positive female role models and approaches to difficult situations with peers.

A mini grant will provide us with the opportunity to facilitate a camp that is geared towards the current issues our youth are facing. With teen suicide rates increasing, we feel this will be a good opportunity to provide a positive outlet to address their concerns

We will take middle school kids out on a trail and teach them about Leave No Trace learning, while picking up trash and learning to recognize where people have harmed the environment and how to fix it. We will learn about the Native Communities and how they lived with and on the land we now live on, and how they survived, and why they are no longer as prominent as they used to be.

We attended many local events, ranging from Latino Pride events to Earth Day events, attending local discussions concerning gentrification to racism and honestly. We didn't have a focus but that was the point, our goal was to learn as much as possible of the world's issues and what's being done to solve them.

Our project will bring enjoyment back to Sunday morning services by incorporating things they can better understand.
