LadyBoss is an empowerment through arts and communication program led by Liberty Towers Black Child Legacy Campaign. The goal of the program is to positively impact girls in the Twin Rivers community by providing education on the leading causes of preventable deaths of children and increasing protective factors.
We teach girls how to act like a lady and think like a boss.
The population served are girls age 10-17 who are enrolled in Twin Rivers School District or live in North Highlands/Foothill Farms community. The girls selected for this program are considered at risk, resilient, and in need of increased pro-social opportunities to boost self esteem and improve self confidence.
LadyBoss facilitates listening circle's at multiple school sites twice monthly where girls are encouraged to share, encourage one another, and problem solve as a team. LadyBOSS coordinates craft projects at the conclusion of the listening circle. Examples of crafts include painting, vision board making, beading, journaling, and other self esteem/ confidence building projects. Trips are used as incentives for program completion.
