United Female Empowerment Workshops

For the past couple of weeks, I've been helping set up some workshops in Clarksdale for this Saturday. Yesterday, 52 kids from 4 counties gathered in Clarksdale and spent 6 hours going to 5 workshops on things they don't necessarily learn in school: nutrition, fitness, health (on puberty and STDs), gender stereotypes, body image and healthy relationships. Here are a few pictures:

Did you have to rent space, or did you use a school? It looks like everyone was having a great time! Who did all the organizing?

We used the adult vocational extension center of the local community college, so it was free. TFA members wrote the lesson plans for the courses, a 3rd year TFA member got the funding and got everything going, I ran the Clarksdale site, and two other corps members ran sites in Helena, AR, and Greenville, MS.
