Fall/ Winter Enrichment Classes

BLOOMING BOSSES- Volunteers Needed!

During the Blooming Bosses Workshop girls will be split into business teams. They will work alongside their teammates to create a feasible business. Each class the girls will learn a portion of a business plan and then execute that portion in a small group. We need 1 volunteer per 4 girls to help the girls make decisions, execute their portion of the plan and put their plan into action. We can offer a $30 refund to any parent who volunteers. Volunteers needed from 3:40-4:30.

During this after-school entrepreneurship workshop series, girls will build businesses around festival-style games of their own inventions. They’ll start from scratch, learning how to execute every aspect of a business – from developing, testing, evaluating profitability, and marketing a game to reaching a target audience! They’ll punctuate lessons with sequences and visualizations that cultivate clarity and confidence. The workshop culminates in a business expo open to friends and family. Open to girls in 1st to 5th grade. We are looking for more 4th & 5th graders to sign up. Will run on Tuesdays from 3:15-4:30 for 6 weeks from October 11th to November 15th.

Mission Propelle empowers girls in 1st to 5th grade to discover who they are, what they believe, and how to advocate for themselves. We accomplish this through an after-school program that combines yoga, reading, and mentoring. In each one-hour class, girls develop mindfulness and self-confidence as they practice yoga. They learn how to solve problems by reading original storybooks starring Dottie Tov, a relatable and age-aligned female protagonist. Throughout class, girls learn to apply leadership skills in their everyday lives as they receive situation-based mentorship from trained instructors.

The ten week session runs Thursday, September 15th to Thursday, November 17th. Fee is $150 for returning students and $155 for new students (New students receive a yoga mat). In participation with WHOLE FOODS MARKET all students will receive a weekly e-book download, parent e-newsletter and a goody bad with healthy snacks & coupons ($50+ in value).
