March 28, 2015 brought field trip mania to SWSG Boston’s mentors and girls. From campus visits at Simmons College and UMass Boston to adventures at the Children’s Museum with Northeastern University, SWSG girls from around Greater Boston were inspired to dream big. See what they were up to in the photos below!
At the close of their visit to the Boston Children’s Museum, girls and their Northeastern University mentors did the SWSG cheer for all of Boston to hear! Click on the image below to see a video.
