AAUW’s Sister-to-Sister Summits bring together diverse, adolescent girls to address issues that concern them- such as sexual harassment, violence, early sexual activity, substance abuse, and body image. AAUW collaborates with girls as well as school administrators, teachers, counselors, local groups, and parent-teacher organizations to plan the summits and pursue follow-up activities.
15th Annual Summit to be held on March 7, 2015,
at Valdosta State University, University Center
Approximately 100 middle school girls from Lowndes and Brooks counties will participate in a full-day mentor program aimed at promoting self-esteem and moral values by giving young girls the tools needed to find solutions to their problems. Those in attendance will receive a free t-shirt, goody bag and will participate in activities like dancing and campus tours.
“The goal is to address issues that impact the lives of middle school girls, yet cannot be covered under curriculum at most schools,” said Beatriz Potter, former Valdosta AAUW President.
Thanks to all who contributed to make last year’s event a success!
