The Junior League of Gwinnett and North Fulton Counties wants to make a difference in the lives of young girls around our community. Our program, Strong Girls, Bright Futures has two main focus areas for our league:
- We want to show girls how to be intelligent, strong, confident, creative, unique, and accomplished. We want them to feel secure, make positive choices, and think critically about the world around them.
- We strive to be positive role models for young girls through our actions and support organizations that teach girls to be empowered and make positive contributions to their communities.
We are building Strong Girls to have Bright Futures! These words (“strong” and “bright”) were selected for a reason. When you hear “strong”, you think of inner strength, confidence in yourself; outer strength, through exercise and healthy living; the strength to resist and stand up to bullying; and strength to resist dating violence. “Bright” brings to mind intelligence, ambition, motivation, creativity, and kindness. Together, we can help girls in our community become strong and bright women in the future!
Thank you to the following young ladies for participating in our Strong Girls, Bright Futures workshop on March 12, 2016 and our High Heel & High Times Fashion Show on March 20, 2016!
