Once I had a clear vision of the program I wanted to create I sought out experts in the field of Library Science for advice. I contacted Ms. Amy Paino, a Children's Librarian at the Yorba Linda Public Library, who mentored me through the process of building a literacy program that would be both educational and entertaining. I reached out to high school students from four different high schools with experience in theater, creative writing and design and invited them to join me in the creation process. I recruited volunteers to help sew costumes and props. I reached out to local businesses such as Sherwin Williams and Staples for donations of supplies which were generously donated. After three months of creation and rehearsal "Read a Story, Change a Life", is now a reality!

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.

The target demographic is women in their freshman and sophomore years of high school when they are starting to consider the possibility of college and potential career paths. Our program will give a group of 5-10 girls the opportunity to acquire hands on experience working in a wildlife rescue. They will come in once or twice a month to build skills in animal husbandry and enrichment, learn about the zoological field and be guided through the mentorship of female animal curators at the Rescue. The girls will also work on a scientific project in which they will be instructed to study a specific animal and devise a suitable enrichment activity. For example, a puzzle with food rewards for monkeys. They then can create a report or presentation for science classes, or science fairs, etc. In addition to career development, our program will provide a therapeutic outlet to girls who may have difficulties at home, or in their communities. Working with animals and spending time in nature has been proven to reduce stress, aid in depression, and boost mood. This experience will help these girls to develop team-working skills, encourage female empowerment, become environmentally conscious and moreover, get them focused and inspired for their future.
