Girls entering grades 6 through 8 are invited to participate in separate camps at Project Self-Sufficiency this summer. The “Girls for a Change Summer Camp” will be held Monday, July 30 through Friday, Aug. 3, from 9 a.m. through 1 p.m. Middle school girls will work as a group to identify a need within the community, and then create a plan for addressing the situation and creating social change. Adult mentors will guide the group as they strive to make a difference in their community.
The “Becoming You: Career Exploration Camp” will be offered Monday, Aug. 6 through Friday, Aug. 10, from 9 a.m. through 1 p.m. Guest speakers will help guide middle school girls in their exploration of a variety of career paths. Group exercises, hands-on projects and other activities will round out the day. Girls will leave with a better grasp of the tasks and aptitudes required for success in a variety of professions.
Both camps are open to girls entering grades 6 – 8 in the fall of 2012; there is a $10 registration fee per camper. Space is limited and pre-registration is required. Lunch will be provided each day. The camps will be offered at Project Self-Sufficiency’s Community Education Center, which is located at 127 Mill Street in Newton. Call Project Self-Sufficiency at 973-940-3500 to enroll.
