Girls Empowerment with BGCS!

Boys & Girls Clubs of Springfield was proud to once again host a Girls Empowerment Movement (GEM) Event this past weekend! GEM included a wide variety of activities for Club members with the aim to increase self-esteem, unity, and confidence. The event was held throughout Saturday and included numerous activities ranging from talks on how to live more holistically, self-defense classes, hair and make-up styling, financial literacy and so much more!
