By April 21, 2013

Parents of fifth- and sixth-grade girls and their daughters are invited to a fun and inspirational weekend workshop this spring run by Girls Leadership Institute and hosted by César Chávez Elementary School.

Space is available for 12 parent/daughter pairs for 14 hours of interactive, hands-on training by professional instructors in assertive communication, managing difficult conversations, modeling empowering behavior and increasing emotional intelligence. These skills will be especially helpful in navigating the upcoming challenges of junior high.

Girls Leadership Institute, a national organization, provides transformational programs to more than 4,000 girls, parents and educators per year. The cost for this training is $400 per parent/daughter plus $10 for room rental. Two scholarship spots are available. Food will be potluck.

Workshop hours will be 6 to 9 p.m. Friday, May 31; 9:30 a.m. to 4:15 p.m. Saturday, June 1; and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sunday, June 2.
