Virtual Program Opportunities & Response to COVID-19
Due to COVID-19, all in-person programs and activities have been cancelled. In this time of uncertainty, we understand the importance of community and connectedness. Through a variety of virtual programs, we aim to stay connected and continue to empower and offer support to our girls (and their families), our volunteers and the entire Cool Girls community.
Girl Talk: Virtual Girls’ Circle
Recent events have brought up a lot of powerful emotions for all of us. This is a safe virtual space for girls to process, vent and support one another.
Cool Fitness: Workout Wednesdays
Promoting the importance of physical fitness and exercise, this virtual workout is held on Wednesdays on Instagram Live.
Cool Scholars Book Club
Every Thursday, our Cool Scholars and Unplugged participants meet to discuss this month’s book club selection.
Virtual Girls Club
In addition to workshops on self-esteem and life-skills; these virtual sessions include a paint party, a zoom talent show, movie watch parties, and much more!
While the primary mission and focus of Cool Girls is to provide life skills programming to our Cool Girls participants, we firmly believe that empowerment is only possible when the basic needs of families are securely met. In addition to our virtual program opportunities, we felt it pertinent to also offer financial support to Cool Girls families most impacted by COVID-19. Cool Girls is currently providing gift cards to local grocery stores to help families facing food insecurity as well as rent and utility assistance on a case-by-case basis.
