Positively More works to help young preteen girls (ages 11 & 12) gain insight and understanding about relevant topics and have lots of fun along the way! Teen Ambassadors (rising 10-12 grade students) volunteer in the program, while gaining leadership skills and community service hours.
Teen Ambassadors attend a mandatory training session on Tuesday January 9, 2018 at the Junior League of Greenwich Headquarters, 231 East Putnam Ave., Greenwich. Teen Ambassadors will learn how to:
- Answer any questions from the preteens
- Assist professionals in the workshops
- Help ease the preteens into feeling safe in a new place with a group of new friends
The Positively More program offers 4 sessions on Saturdays from 9am-4pm. Teen Ambassadors can participate in as many of these 4 sessions as desired, once training is completed.
After a day of fun and engaging workshops, the 11 and 12-year-olds gather around a panel of the Teen Ambassadors. This wrap up provides a platform for 11 & 12 year old girls to ask any questions that came to mind during the day. Topics have historically included friendship woes, dating questions, fashion concerns, and conflict with parents & siblings.
