~ ABOUT US ~
New year, new team...
and a new global sisterhood!
For the 2019-2020 school year, we are focusing on expanding our outreach internationally, partnering with the Dominican Republic girls empowerment group, "Chicas Poderosas"!
And getting involved with global issues such as Typhoon Kammuri and its deadly aftermath.
Getting Crafty with Health & Wellness
Making stress-relief bath bombs with the comforting aromatherapy properties of eucalyptus, lemongrass, peppermint, orange and lavender.
With such a large team, we'll need to divide into sub-committees to be most effective:
In our third year of implementation as a Girls Build LA Team at Palmdale Learning Plaza, we are trying our hand at something new! Years 1 & 2 of implementation (2016-2017), our goal was to close the gender gap in STEM-related career fields and expose as many girls to science, technology, engineering and math as possible. In 2018, our third year of implementation, we are switching our focus to student health and wellness. We hope to stress the importance of getting fit and living active, healthy lifestyles to reduce childhood obesity and onset diseases such as diabetes, which are on the rise. We are bringing awareness to health-related topics such as: diet and nutrition, healthy food preparation, exercise programs, meditation, stress relief and mental health.
