Description

In an increasingly complex world, this program offers girls a safe space for both introspection and connection, reflecting upon current events while clarifying their hopes, aspirations and personal values. Every week we discuss a collection of carefully curated, feminist-focused news stories, after which girls process their thoughts through self-reflective writing. As girls write, they come to understand their unique strengths, and how they want to use their "author-ity" and voice as leaders, activists, and change-agents. (It's also great training for the college essay process, empowering girls to tell their story in an authentic, inspiring way.)

As with all our programs, we use the Amherst Writing Method, a methodology rooted in the belief that everyone is a writer, that all feedback be positive, and that our writing voice will continually grow clearer and stronger, the more it is validated and encouraged.
