Teen Girl’s Program
The “My life is Precious” Program is inspiring young girls (13 to 19) to be empowered with leadership skills that will enhance their future contributions to society as well as their local community. These girls do not have to be HIV positive to participate in this program. However, they do have to have a desire for change to take place to help those who are most impacted by any negative situation.
These girls will learn how to advocate for others, how to budget and prepare for the workforce system. If you are interested in joining this program please register online by clicking here.
