Dance Team We are providing our youth the opportunity to experience self-expression through dance. Participants are introduced to a variety of dance types and they learn about the origin of each. As a result, our youth will gain knowledge about dance culture, exercise, and use dancing as a coping strategy. They will practice skills that help them become leaders and also work as a team.
Sister Circle Sister Circle program. It is a youth-led empowerment program serving teen and college age young women in underserved communities in the MetroWest area. It was created to provide a space for our adolescents to discuss relevant issues affecting them including culture and identity, and relationships. The group meets biweekly for two hours during the academic school year as well as an annual conference. The goal of this program is to empower girls to discover and be proud of who they are. Help them lean into learning more about the culture & communities they are a part of and come from. By encouraging them to explore their identity and emotions, we aim to influence the next generation of leaders, and problem solvers.
