Young ladies, grades 8 and up, are invited to attend a FREE event on Saturday, October 2, from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at University of Nevada Cooperative Extension’s Lifelong Learning Center.  Girls For A Change is empowering young women to take control of their health and bodies, lead social change, and speak out against societal pressures and censorship. Empowering girls to believe in themselves and see themselves as social change agents starts with helping them to overcome the negative messages about girls that swirl around them constantly. To register, please contact Mary Regan, 4-H Program Officer, at 702-257-5524 or e-mail reganm@unce.unr.edu and she will be happy to tell you more!
