Girls Empowerment Camp

This camp is designed for girls to discover their inner strengths and hone their skills to succeed in school, prepare for college and succeed in their careers. This two-week course includes:

 

Career Discovery with a certified Kuder Career Coach. The Kuder Career Planning System will give students insight into their interests, skills and values. They will set future goals, multi-year educational plans and job visits with area professionals. The students receive a life-long subscription to the Kuder Career Planning website so they can explore scholarships, schools and interests long after the class is over.

Personal Empowerment. Annie Woods, a Des Moines life coach, will cover the topics of relationships with self and others, personal responsibility, work, leadership, and money. Annie focuses on how to take dreams and turn them into action. Check out Annie's philosophies and background at http://www.anniepwoods.com

 

Fashion 101. Dressing for respect while accenting your best features adds fun to a serious week. Parody Boatwright, a Des Moines, French-born fashion expert, will demonstrate how what we wear and how we present ourselves is the first thing people see and first impressions are powerful. Parody will talk about body types and what types of clothing flatter different shapes and touch on makeup as well. 

 

Writing for High School and College. The easiest way to get A's in English is to have excellent writing skills. Our seasoned English teacher, Kim Storey, will teach girls how to improve their writing skills with the IWE curriculum and Kurzweil Literacy Software.  Kurzweil is one of the leading technology software programs that help with research, note taking, creating study guides and writing papers. Students will receive a one-year subscription to Kurzweil as well as lessons on how to use it. This in itself is a $400 value.

 

Digital and Personal Safety. A big challenge for teens today is learning when to put their phones down, and tune into the people present in the moment. Local digital literacy and online safety experts will teach these skills. What should I post and when should I post? How to stay safe and be respectful to peers, family, co-workers and bosses.  Learn situational safety awareness in daily activities from the COBRA Self Defense Iowa and suburban police department DARE and 511 officers.

 

Camp Price: $400. Includes life-time access to the Kuder Career Planning System and one-year subscription to Kurzweil 3000.  The course is 10 days over two-weeks: Monday - Friday from 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM.

Customer Comments

"Our family wants to thank you from the bottom of our heart! We were so glad fate had our paths cross at the right moment...our first grade son was struggling with reading and starting to dislike school. You helped us understand his unique challenges and with tutoring, you’ve helped him become a great reader. Perhaps more importantly, this built his academic confidence and ability to learn that will forever change his life path! We are so grateful we started him early, and had the guidance and care from you all. We are so proud he has graduated (4th grade) - but I know he will actually miss seeing his friends at tutoring; he really came to love going! Thank you for being an incredible resource at just the right time! And please do use this testimonial, and refer folks to chat with us about our experience!"
