GBP Newsletter 2009
DON’T CALL IT A COMEBACK!! We were out but never down. The Girl Blue Project is bringing IT in 2009. In the spirit of this past election we would like to say; YES we can, YES we have AND YES we will continue to do so!
We are excited about our 2009 summer session. We are rested and ready to face new and exciting challenges. Though change has come, some things have remained the same. As the saying goes, “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” Girl Blue will still have some of the same great classes like Yoga, Self-awareness, Dance, Voice, Acting and Creative Writing but we want to be more socially conscious this year and address a serious issue facing young minority women. We want to focus on educating our young ladies about of HIV/AIDS. Minorities, especially African-American women are testing positive at an alarming rate and The Girl Blue Project wants to do all it can to lower that number. Who knows, one of our girls may go forth and develop a cure. Never underestimate the power of a Girl Blue girl. YOU BETTA’ RECOGNIZE! THIS IS HOW WE ROLL.
We realize we won’t be able to make the world a better place if we’re not around to do the work. So it’s time to educate so that we can eradicate this disease… Educate to Eradicate. I hope that’s not trademarked because I think it may just be our slogan this summer. Hmmm… somebody call a lawyer. Seriously, we have got much work to do and we are reaching out to the community asking all who can to participate. Our session will run the entire month of AUGUST so our girls will have lots to do in a little amount of time. . We are currently accepting APPLICATIONS until July 30th. If you know of any girl who may benefit from this program please refer her to our website or call 213-387-2053. We are looking for girls who can make the commitment. The Girl Blue Project is a FREE program and WE NEED YOU to GIVE, GIVE, and GIVE so that we can continue to honor our commitment to empower young women. To make a contribution please visit us at:
