More Information About the Workshop


Transitioning to High School

The transition to high school can be challenging.  Expectations are higher, demands on schedules increase, and the stress of balancing academics with athletic and other extracurricular goals can be overwhelming.  This workshop is specifically designed for 8th grade young women to provide them with skills to help them succeed in high school.


Mind, Body and Soul

Young women today are faced with many pressures. They must learn to balance competing demands while taking care of their own health and wellness.  Often it can be difficult to maintain a positive attitude and growth mindset when faced with the high expectations of school, family and community. This workshop is centered around the theme of nourishing your mind, body and soul -- and is designed to help young women develop the important skills they need for high school and beyond.


What to Expect at the Workshop

During this free workshop, eighth grade young women will have the opportunity to learn from expert panelists on the topics of nutrition, sleep, mental health and wellness, healthy balance, community service and confidence.  This workshop will bring together eighth graders from all around the DC/MD/VA area.  Please share this information with 8th graders in your community!
