Our next Changing Directions of 2015 will be Aug. 22 from 8:30am until 1:00pm at the San Antonio Municipal Courthouse. Changing Directions is one of the court-mandated programs that girls age 12-17 can take to avoid jail for a first time misdemeanor offense.
We provide breakfast for the girls and a four hour program that helps inform them of how to make better choices in their lives. This is one of our biggest and most demanding (and most rewarding) events as we have seen many girls’ lives changed! We need lots of ladies to help keep the girls engaged and participating! If you can join us, please RSVP by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or posting to our public Facebook invite here.
We of course had our Guatemala trip in July (see prior post) but we also had a discover Chicktime at EZs, where we discussed plans for 2016. We are very excited as we are presenting a proposal to the City of San Antonio to expand Changing Directions to six times a year (which will help even more girls!) and we have some other exciting plans as well. Stay tuned for updates on next year!
