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 as shepherds to the girls, gaining leadership skills and community service hours.
Teen Ambassadors attend a mandatory training session on Tuesday January 9, 2018 7:00pm-8:00pm at the Junior League of Greenwich Headquarters, 231 East Putnam Ave., Greenwich. Teen Ambassadors will learn how to:
- Make the girls feel comfortable and included
- Answer any questions from the preteens
- Assist professionals and JLG members 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 four sessions on Saturdays with Teen Ambassadors required to participate from 9:00am – 4:00pm. Teen Ambassadors are encouraged to participate in all four sessions, once training is completed, but they are not required to do so.
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 friends, parents & siblings.
