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.
It will empower students to utilize various resources to map their community and to discover needs as well as resources.

In depth study on the theme: "Balance Man-Animal-Environment" through the use of the Technology Entertainment Design (TED), instrument apt for spreading "valuable ideas".
The project involves the students in the research of TEDs on the subject of eco-sustainability and in the critical analysis of their theses in order to carry out an in-depth study on the issues related to the protection of the environment. As a final result, they will make a short film that will highlight the focal points of substance and ideas acquired. They will convey their derived considerations and proposals to give evidence to the one element that is becoming more and more essential, which is that each individual is to take active part to protect the environment and therefore the life of animals and humans. The students will make use of those sentences, images, interviews likely to have the strongest possible impact.
