Enrollment in free after-school classes and weekend programming is self-selecting — girls and young women may sign up for one or all programs offered in their age or grade group. Enrollment opens in mid-September for Fall semester, and mid-January for Spring semester. During Spring Break, we offer an arts intensive for young women aged 13-18 including performance poetry, film making, visual art and theater (apply in February). We also offer a Summer Arts & Leadership Academy for girls aged 10-15 (apply in May/June), and operate a Summer Youth Employment work site training Peer Educators.
