Youth LEAP and GO Girls Ending Strong!

Our Youth LEAP and GO Girls programs are wrapping up, and it’s been an exciting spring semester for all! What have they been up to this semester? Here are some highlights!

Youth Leap Go Girls

  • Youth LEAPers at the HeartShare St. Vincent’s Services group home in Staten Island designed anti-domestic violence t-shirts. They also created an Instagram account to encourage others to share their experiences with dating violence (support them by following the account and posting!)

  • GO Girls at East River Academy on Rikers Island submitted original works to Tenacious, a magazine that publishes the struggles and experiences of incarcerated women across the US

  • GO Girls at Lutheran Social Services group home in Brooklyn created posters for their residence highlighting teen friendly health clinics.
