INITIATIVES

She Loves Presents:

Love Out Loud Leadership and Development Workshop

 

Love Out Loud Leadership and Development Workshop is an original She Loves initiative. Participants will be introduced to new opportunities through knowledge sharing and representation. This curriculum has been carefully curated to serve as individual workshops OR as a cumulative program, where skills taught in previous session prepare participants for the session to follow. Each session has its very own life lessons in development and leadership. Participants will have tangible items to take home in which they can reflect upon and commemorate each session with. We engage our girls at their level, drawing from their interests and treating them as partners in their development. At the center of our curriculum are soft skills (interpersonal and behavioral), Social emotional learning lessons and life skills. The goal is to enable our girls to become powerful leaders with a powerful vision for their future. They will leave with a new found readiness and confidence for the next stage of their lives (middle school, high school, college, etc.) In addition to a support system at She Loves to lean on, as they curate a life they love. 

 

Overview  Each session will maintain a consistent schedule of daily activities that will be structured based on that week's theme. This means, for example we will always have a daily guests but the selected guest speaker will be relevant to the theme/topic of the week, or we will always incorporate an art/ reading activity, still, relevant to the week’s theme/topic.
