Culture of Mean:
From Cyberspace to the Cafeteria
When: Wednesday, April 23rd from 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM
It used to be scribbled on notes and passed by hand in the hallways. But with the advent of computers and cellphones, middle-school meanness can spread like wildfire. How has bullying changed in this new age of technology? With cyber-bullying and its often tragic consequences capturing daily headlines, what can parents, educators and kids do about it?

One of our favorite Smart-Girl activities involves the use of a mask as a tool for gaining a greater sense of self-awareness. We have each girl paint both the outside and inside of a mask, symbolizing how they see themselves and what they show others about who they are. It’s always a highlight of the program, and girls take away the ability to accept their true selves, and courage of outward expression they didn’t have before.
On Wednesday, October 23rd, we’re turning the tables and giving you the chance to make your own mask – just in time for Halloween, too!
Join us for a special Smart-Girl Self-Defense Workshop! You’ve done your best to protect your little girl since birth. Now she’s growing up and out in the world. Equip her with important skills to protect herself and give you peace of mind.
