Program In Carey Schools Aims To Help Girls Navigate Adolesence

12/11/18 – 5:33 A.M.

Carey schools are implementing a program designed to help sixth-grade girls navigate the challenges they face on a daily basis. Guidance Counselor Shannon Darby told the school board about the “Ruling Our Experiences” program during a Monday night meeting.

10 sixth-grade girls will take part for 10 weeks during the second semester. The founder of the program says it helps navigate challenges like drops in self-esteem, bullying, and unhealthy dating relationships. The girls who take part could possibly teach their classmates following the 10-week program.

A grant will cover the $75-per-participant cost.
