TGIA kicks off its 7th Year
Last night the first meeting of Bedford Stuyvesant's Teen Girls in Action (TGIA) took place. As is our tradition, we kick off the first meeting checking in with each to see how everyone's summer was and how the beginning of the school is year is going. We then spoke about to upcoming year. We decided on monthly themes for our weekly meetings and talked about different service opportunities TGIA would like to undertake. Of course number one on their list was a return trip to West Virginia. They also decided to do bake sales through out the year to raise money to support their trip.
On tap for next weeks meeting...resume writing. We will be spending the rest of September and October on job skills.
