New Milford workshop aims to promote middle school girls' self esteem

NEW MILFORD — Youth Agency Presents “Girl Power,” an ongoing workshop designed to promote female empowerment for middle school students to help boost self esteem through fun group activities and creative projects.

This is a safe place for pre-teens to come together, share stories, discuss important topics, get advice, and make friends, with a goal of being kinder to each other and ourselves.

Workshops are held the first Wednesday of the month beginning April 7, from 3 to 4 p.m., at John Pettibone Community Center, 2 Pickett District Road, New Milford.

Once school resumes in-person, students will need a bus pass to go directly from Schaghticoke Middle School to JPCC.
