New Class: The Foundation
welcomes Emily’s Girls 2010
In October EMILY’s WAY –
the Foundation’s mentoring program – welcomed five new freshman
girls and 12 girls returning from the previous year.
Emily’s Way began its second year on a mission to achieve academic
excellence with a Pre-SAT workshop, which was open not only to
Emily’s Girls but the community at large.
Emily’s Way believes that by focusing on self esteem, self efficacy,
and future orientation young women are less likely to engage in
risky behaviors and more likely to develop positive connections and
increase their likelihood for successful life outcomes.
Additional programming includes field trips that allow Emily’s Girls
to explore academic, professional, cultural, social, and athletic
interests, and a yearly service project conceived, managed, and
delivered by the participants of Emily’s Way.
“Emily’s Girls” will learn that their beliefs, drive, and actions
will bring them the success they desire and deserve.
