Girls Will Be Girls Learning Workshop

A Peacemaking Project by Angie L.

What is the injustice we are solving?

Many girls are exculded from participating in male-dominated programs and, as a result, dont get to learn how to do many important tasks that will help them excel in life.

Our Compassionate Solution:

To solve this injustice of women and nonbinary persons not understanding basic lifeskills
we will address the lack of resources offered by their communities over these topics
by having (preferably femxle and nonbinary) experts of these topics come and host a workshop to enlighten young and older women and nonbinaries alike on the importance of these skills and conduct an exercise to teach them.

Our Project Plan:

Goals

  • Raise awareness for girls learning in my community.
  • Continue to encourage girls and nonbinary persons to continue their education and challenge what they've been told they can and cannot do.
  • Create mentorships between young persons and STEAM professionals.
  • Create an event where girls and nonbinary persons can explore careers.

We will increase my / our compassion by...

We will increase our compassion by giving a voice to the marginalized and addresses their problems.

How will you show courage?

We will show courage by giving hope for the future of women and nonbinary peoples. We will encourage and push for strides in their education.

How will you collaborate with others?

I will reach out to femxle and nonbinary STEAM professionals to participate in teaching and furthering the education of the young people in my community.

How will you know you are moving in the right direction? (What are specific ways you can measure your impact?)

I will know I am moving in the right direction as mentorships are created during my event and as curiosity and excitement begin not only in the target audience but in their families and loved ones.

Key Steps

  • 1. Reach out to STEAM professionals and organizations in my community that can help nurture female and nonbinary learning.
  • 2. Start spreading awareness through social media and third-parties (my school district, newspapers/websites/ social media of friends and families).
  • 3. Plan out and organize volunteers and communicate with people in my community to see what they think they lack or have a need for.
