Girl Scout Troop 19313 recently hosted their 4th Annual Sisterhood Café Workshop for High School Girls at the Brentwood Clubhouse in Stockbridge. The students had the unique opportunity to spend an afternoon with women professionals in various health fields. The students heard from these professionals about challenges faced by teens today and learned tactics on how to handle and effect change in their lives. The mission of Girl Scouts is to build girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place. The Sisterhood Café is an event for girls 14 – 16 that allows them to express themselves and share ideas in a safe and comfortable setting. “It is important for teens to develop a positive self-concept and high self-esteem in order to better their chances for a purposeful and satisfying adulthood,” says Dr Karen Landry, LPC CPCS Executive Director, Purpose Development LLC, Excellence United of GA (EUGA). “The Seniors undertook this project because of their empathy for girls their age that fall prey to peer pressure and other negative influences that cause them to take their eyes off their studies” says Camille Reynoso, Girl Scout Troop 19313 Leader.
