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.

The Oakley Park Roots & Shoots leaders will research what plants are good for our zone, research a healthy habitat for our animal visitors and research the benefits of learning outdoors. We will then implement our findings by planting new plants, building a heathy habitat for our mother duck and other animals and last we will educate our school on the importance of outdoor class time.

The grandchildren (now ages 4 and 6) help to choose plants, and they help to plant and care for them. They have selected fruit trees to grow and have specified which butterflies to try to attract to the garden. They help to water and to weed and to fill the bird-feeder.

Source used for students to better understand the similarities and differences between Archaea, Bacteria and Eukarya. Before researching, students with randomly be assigned Metabolism, function, Structure, or homeostasis. They will then be let go to research the structure, function, metabolism, or homeostasis for Archaea, Bacteria and Eukarya/Eukarya Kingdoms. Structure and function go with Eukarya Kingdoms, while metabolism and homeostasis go with Archaea, Bacteria, and Eukarya. They will also give a brief explanation as to why their researched topic is important for Archaea, Bacteria and Eukarya to function and what might happen if something were to dysfunction. After they have found their information, they will upload it to the project page with their assigned info finding task and name.
