“Special thanks to the parents and friends who came out and showed their support,” said Coordinator Courtney Wall. “We would also like to thank the various community agencies, Jeff’s trophies, as well as our intern Ms. Meleah Platt, and Ms. ViAngela Roach from DSS. Girls Can! will restart in 2013.”
Girls Can! sessions are currently held every week at the Richmond County Transitional School, Leak Street High School and Rohanen Middle school.
The Girls Can! program was first established in July 2010 in order to help girls with self-esteem, setting goals, assertive training, and other things they may experience on a day to day basis.
