Tedi and Sonya Serge, co-founders of Sand Sisters LA, are returning to their hometown of Springfield, Mo to host Girl Powerful™ Workshops for underserved youth. The sister duo created original Girl Powerful curriculum that is based on socio-emotional learning (SEL) because they take the motto "be who you needed when you were younger" to heart. Girl Powerful is made up of everything they wished they had when they were younger. The program mentors tween girls, ages 8-14, to develop the tools to build a strong sense of self through self-esteem building, managing emotions, self-discovery, health and wellness practices and celebrating female friendships. Youth who are involved in SEL activities are proven to have increased academic and social skills and youth with a mentor are less likely to get involved with drugs and alcohol. 

Sand Sisters will be providing complimentary Girl Powerful workshops to tween girls from Boys and Girls Club Springfield, Monett YMCA (sponsored by MO SWITCH) and Northwest Project. Sand
