RWF 24Hour GirlTalk Teaches Teens about Purpose, Poise, and Preparation
“24-Hour Girl Talk” is an annual program and pajama party designed to provide teens with information and resources needed to chart a course for success. Girls participate in a variety of workshops and activities that reinforce the importance of life skills, learning, and leadership. Presenters focus on issues such as health, education, and communication and share personal stories and success strategies that encourage teens to set goals, make positive choices, and honor themselves. The teens also practice expressing themselves through fun activities such as art, dance, and group discussion during the pajama party. A highlight of the day is our Detroit Girls Who Rock Award where we honor metro Detroit teen girls who are doing outstanding things in the their community, academically, athletically and as young entrepreneurs. If you know a young woman ages 12-18 who is a Detroit Girl Who Rocks, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to request a nomination form.
