As the Summer comes to an end, Girls For A Change participants find it hard to say goodbye to friends, staff, and their “second home.” Each year, we host an Annual Closing Ceremony to celebrate the power of girls trying new things, discovering themselves, and creating sisterhood. The Closing Ceremony consists of a banquet dinner, awards, live music, and special guests.

Each fall, Girls For A Change hosts a Black Girl Rally to recruit girls and get them excited about upcoming Girls For A Change programs. Each rally has its own theme, and invites community leaders to come together with girls to solve problems and barriers they face in their daily lives.

This all day retreat will have sessions for adults, children and combined sessions for adults and children.

Registration required.
