Rosie’s Girls Spring Challenge 2012 Registration Now Open:

Santa Monica’s Rosie’s Girls alumnae has paired with 5th grade girls to introduce them to the Rosie’s Girls experience.

Older girls work side-by-side to mentor the 5th graders on fun, hands-on projects in carpentry and welding, creative expression, physical challenges, and leadership development. This year each girl will be building their own “It’s time to…CLOCK” trades project.

Rosie’s Girls Santa Monica is the current recipient of the League of California Cities’ Helen Putnam Award for Excellence for engaging youth in city government.

It is designed especially for girls entering middle school to develop self-esteem, leadership, and physical confidence through an exploration of the trades and other non-traditional activities.

Rosie’s Girls Spring Challenge 2012 will be taking place April 9-13, 2012 and is held at the City Maintenance Yards located at 2500 Michigan Avenue. It is open to 5th grade girls who are interested in challenging activities and finding out how much they can achieve and returning alumnae who have participated in Rosie’s Girls at least one summer who are interested in leading and being role models for incoming Rosie’s Girls.

Rosie’s Girls will also offer two three-week sessions in the summer: June 25-July 13 and July 23-August 10, 2012 for girls entering grades 6-8 in the coming school year 2012-13. Generous financial assistance is available to qualifying families. Payment plans are available upon request.
