We are happy to announce that we have officially decided what site we will be bringing 1girl to next! After working hard to evaluate and learn from our time at the Clintonville Resource Center, we are ready to move on and incorporate the lessons we learned to build an even stronger program moving forward. We will be doing this in partnership with After School All Stars at Champion Middle School.
Champion is a beautiful school located on the Near East Side of Columbus. However, the students at Champion have faced a range of challenges. In fact, Champion Middle School is now the lowest performing middle school in all of Ohio. Read more about Champion here.
We are excited about the possibilities of working with girls from Champion Middle School! After School All Stars staff members have talked extensively about the potential these girls have that they have not had the opportunity to show. We hope that 1girl will give these girls the opportunity to develop the skills and confidence they need to find fulfillment and become successful leaders in their community.
1girl will take place on Monday and Tuesday afternoons with girls in grades 6-8. Keep following the blog to learn more about how things are going at Champion!
