Our girls’ empowerment program is recognized as best educational resource in the SEL category
We’re thrilled to announce that our new girls’ empowerment curriculum, Real As Me, won a prestigious REVERE Award from the Association of American Publishers on May 25th. It was named best out-of-school educational resource in the social and emotional learning category.
Real As Me is being used by Girls Inc. at Young Women’s Leadership School in the Bronx, and in several New York City youth-serving agencies and juvenile justice settings.
Our professional development helps staff implement the stories and activities from Real As Me with youth to deepen their understanding of gender issues. It also strengthens their ability to lead safe and supportive groups, promotes literacy, and builds the decision-making skills that help girls grow into confident young women.
