Partnerships and Teamwork
EmpowHer Institute has
partnered with Operation Hope and Planned Parenthood to bring programs to the schools that we team with. In May and June these organizations are bringing financial literacy and economic empowerment as well as health education to our EmpowHer girls, the boys at our partner schools and their families. Parents learned techniques for talking to their children about sex and the students learned about health, wealth, sex, sexuality, and sorted out myth from fact. This is a wonderful way to introduce crucial life-skills and fundamental responsibility that will serve the students for many years to come. We are excited we were able to bring them this opportunity to learn and ask questions from experts.
June is always an exciting month for our students as they are eager to finish their current grade and start their summer. It is exciting for us too, because although its bittersweet to say goodbye to our girls for the summer months, we are gratified in knowing our program provided them with pivotal lessons during the school year. Closing ceremonies are for our girls, our mentors, our teachers and the parents to recognize and honor the hard work and growth that occurred over the year. We will say a short goodbye for now, and look forward to seeing our girls again in the fall.
Thurgood Marshall Middle School's closing ceremony will take place on June 12th and Environmental Middle School has their closing ceremony on June 15th.
There shall be eternal summer in the grateful heart.
