ECCANDC was excited to support Pretty in Pink, a Youth Empowerment Conference for girls 8-17 held at the J. T. Harvard Recreation Center on April 6, 2019. We provided a $1,000 Neighborhood Purposes Grant for the event.
The event was first held seven years ago with ten girls. This year it blossomed to 300 participants who got to do fun art projects, yoga, self defense, sports, dance and more while discussing issues they care about, making friends with other girls and program leaders, and learning empowering skills. Some hot topics include healthy relationships, peer pressure, education, hygiene, self esteem, self image, anti bullying and suicide prevention.
ECCANDC is proud to be part of a program that empowers our girls for a great future! You go girl!
