Jump Into Spring is an energetic event that brings together the majority of our college mentors and girl participants each year. It focuses on jump roping, learning, inspiring talks and performances. The girls were excited to meet City Councilor Andrea Campbell at the event. This year the event featured three amazing performance groups: OrigiNation Inc, NE Bhangra Club, and Tufts BEATS!
Strong Awards was a wonderful celebration of our amazing mentors. We were grateful to have Boston City Council President Michelle Wu as our keynote speaker. Her words inspired our mentors to continue to lead and create change after they complete their Strong Women, Strong Girls experience. Another highlight was a performance by one of our own mentors, Avanti Nagral, from Harvard.
Thank you to all of our college mentors at Harvard, Tufts, UMass Boston, Simmons, Boston College, and Northeastern for all that you do to bring our work to life. Your efforts in our afterschool program for girls make all the difference in ensuring that every girl will realize her inner strengths to dream and do.
