Stand in Your Power Workshop
On January 12th, Beth Dostal and Stephanie Bersh hosted a workshop for girls to teach them friendship dynamics and how to be a leader of kindness in their friend circles. All girls experience relationship dynamics that can be hurtful at times. We help empower tweens to stand in their own power to manage relational aggression through activities such as yoga, role play, and meaningful discussion. This workshop helped tweens build empathy, a fundamental skill that all young girls can improve upon. It was a truly inspiring day!
