The Community Bridges Girls Program encourages girls in 4th through 12th grades to explore their identity, increase their self-esteem, and build their character in a safe and nurturing space.
Girls in our CB Girls program develop leadership skills and personal responsibility through a variety of experiential and in-classroom learning opportunities. Our integrated programming encourages our girls to lead holistically healthy lives: emotionally, socially, and physically.
Weekly lessons focus on topics such as healthy relationships, cultural awareness, and leadership and goal setting. Lessons are reinforced with out-of-school trips and activities such as participation in our annual Career & Innovation Summit, attendance at youth empowerment conferences, opportunities for community advocacy, and more.
Program curricula and activities are devised so that girls acquire diverse tools and strategies for overcoming adversity and advocating on behalf of themselves and their peers. In addition, field trips, college tours, and community service opportunities build girls’ leadership capacity and help them to become college and career ready.
We are currently serving girls at Highland ES, JoAnn Leleck at Broad Acres ES, Pinecrest ES, Rolling Terrace ES, Sargent Shriver ES, Eastern MS, Silver Spring International MS, Takoma Park MS, White Oak MS, James Hubert Blake HS, Montgomery Blair HS, Northwood HS, and Springbrook HS.
We are always looking to engage more girls in our community! To join our program or to learn more, email email@example.com or give us a call at (301) 585-7155.
CB was like a second family. I always felt like no matter what, someone in CB would listen and guide me…and CB showed me how to use my voice.
