GEDA Summer Program
EMPOWER your children with CSE this summer!!
Up to 75 elementary and middle school students will have the opportunity to become empowered this summer, thanks to one-week EMPOWER: Comprehensive Self-Awareness Education workshops being offered free of charge through the Bureau of Women’s Affairs and the Governor’s Childcare programs: Prugråman I Pinilan I Famagu'on Guåhan Community Care Grant Program.
“Students ages 7-13 who attend these free workshops will learn about personal wellbeing and proper relationship development through fun and age-appropriate activities that engage, teach, and give them the knowledge to be able to protect themselves and make good relationship choices in the future,” according to Jayne Flores, BWA Director.
The workshop curriculums are based on the “Navigating Personal Wellbeing & Sexuality in CHamoru & Chuukese Communities” curriculum written by Drs. Lisa Linda Natividad and Tim de La Cruz of the University of Guam. The curriculum is a culture-based learning resource focused on personal wellness and health in our communities.
Two of the three workshop cohorts will be based at the Guam Community College in Mangilao, giving students the opportunity to learn more about secondary and post-secondary educational opportunities. The third workshop cohort will be offered at Island Girl Power in Dededo. All workshops will run from 8:00 am - 4:00 pm. All workshop materials (including journals, gardening and nutrition workshops and daily lunches) are included free of charge.
