Girlfriends of Pinellas County is a very special group designed for girls in 4th-12th grade. The mission of the group is to create a supportive environment for young ladies in Pinellas County that will encourage positive behaviors, enhance self-discipline, develop personal dependability, and cultivate high self-esteem by building strong relationships with positive role models. Opportunities will be provided for learning new skills by participating in community service projects, which will aid in developing optimistic attitudes and compassion for others. Mentorship will inspire young ladies to set goals and work towards their highest potential as productive, caring responsible, young ladies.
Girls will be mentored either individually or in a group. During this time 6th – 8th grade girls will participate lessons and activities centered on building friendships, dealing with bullying and standing up for themselves in a respectful manner, self-esteem, high academic achievement, and creativity. We will be completing various community service projects throughout the school year. Meetings will be help twice per month at 8:45am in Mrs. Read’s classroom, 4-116. Since transportation will not be provided, students will need to be dropped off or other arrangements for getting to school will need to be made.
