GirlPower is a healthy relationship education program for girls participating in Chrysalis After-School groups. High school students serve as teachers and mentors for younger girls. Volunteers are trained in our healthy relationshop program curriculum and then partnered with younger girls in their after-school groups. Trainings will be held after school in the winter (including some weekends) and teaching begins in the spring.
Chrysalis After-School is the community’s leading program for girls ages 9 to 14 and for high school girls’ leadership development. Our emphasis on resilience, connectedness, self-confidence, and health includes volunteerism, academic support, leadership development, STEM engagement, financial literacy, and mentoring.
