Erie, PA, June 10, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- Each Tuesday from June 19 to July 24, The Ophelia Project will offer girls in grades five through eight an emotionally and physically healthy alternative to the usual summer activities. These weekly “Girl-Talk” sessions are designed to boost self-esteem, promote positive body image and help build strong relationships through discussion, physical activity and creative arts.
The fun starts at noon and goes until 3 p.m. Girls will get together with peers and college-aged mentors in a safe and caring environment to address the issues they face everyday. From cliques to bullying, girls will have a chance to share what they have experienced and learn ways to lead a healthy life during these turbulent adolescent years.
“Girl-Talk” sessions take place at The Ophelia Project’s Erie Office, 718 Nevada Drive. Cost is $25 per student for all six weeks; limited sponsorships are available. An afternoon snack will be provided. Contact The Ophelia Project at 456-5437 for more information or to register.
