Program Update: Healthy Girls
December 11, 2014
Our new program year for the Healthy Girls program has kicked-off to a great start! We’ve developed some amazing partnerships in Milwaukee’s public schools and worked closely with community members who are championing and promoting our work. These relationships have helped us to deliver this national evidence-based curriculum intended to expand life options, reduce rates of teen pregnancy, and foster healthy appreciation of sexuality among lesbian and bisexual female teens.
Recent & upcoming events
Recently, we delivered four Healthy Girls programs at Golda Meir School, Alliance High School, Project Q and a 2-Day retreat at Diverse & Resilient. In all, 49 girls attended these programs with 39 identifying as Lesbian, Bisexual and Queer.
We’re excited about upcoming events in the new year at Rufus King High School, Vincent High School and Milwaukee School of Languages.
Program Coordinator: Bethamie Wyatt
Bethamie is thrilled to be a part of the Diverse & Resilient team. She is grateful to provide such important and needed information to girls throughout the city of Milwaukee, giving them critical life skills and encouraging a mindset focused on self-care and their future goals. Bethamie is excited about applying her background in adolescent and women’s health and long history of work in the girl development field.
