Girlpower Program Wins Award!
YWCA Carlisle GIRL POWER recognized by Shippensburg University as an Exemplary Program!
March 2015 – Carlisle, PA. YWCA Carlisle announced today that one of its pivotal, long-time programs to empower girls is one of the recipients of the Award of Exemplary Program sponsored by the Shippensburg University Study School Council. The programs’ leaders, Amy Lowther and Sonya Browne, both with YWCA Carlisle, will accept the award at a ceremony on May 6th on the campus of Shippensburg University.
“It is extremely meaningful to have Girl Power recognized as an important tool for encouraging middle and high school girls to work on improving life skills, building self-esteem, discussing healthy relationships and being a positive change-agent in the community,” said Youth Director, Amy Lowther. The program has been offered in the Carlisle School district since the 2001-2002 school year and has impacted numerous female students at Wilson and Lamberton Middle Schools as well as the Carlisle High School.
“Being recognized by the school District speaks volumes to the girls and the program of Girl Power,” commented Hallmark Program Director, Sonya Browne. “Girl Power provides a safe place for the girls to share personal stories and concerns. They learn how to cope and resolve problems in a strong and positive way,” she said. GirlPower also includes setting both academic and personal growth goals, field trips outside of school time, community service projects, and being advocates against racism and learning to stand up against abusive situations.
