For many of us, February is a time of reflection. Although it is not the only time we celebrate Black history, it is certainly a special time—a time of honoring the dreams and the work of our ancestors. We stand proudly and humbly on the sacrifices and commitment of those that came before us.
Earlier this week, we shared 12 Homeschool Activities That Highlight Trailblazing Black Women. In honor of our ancestors, we'll be using these activities to decide which middle and high school girls will receive our $1,000 Live Boldly Book Scholarship.
Cash in "The Cocoon"
Growing up, cash was always my favorite incentive. If you have a convo with my dad, he'll tell you stories about how the kids in our family left him broke by earning A's on our report cards. :-) Well, last month I got a taste of what my dad experienced. We kicked off our Cocoon Club Cash, an incentive that awards girls cash prizes for their leadership achievements.
DECISIONS, DECISIONS, DECISIONS...
As we close out this calendar year, we're thinking about the choices we make that shape our lives and lead to our dreams becoming a reality. During our December group mentoring session, we explored our strongest and weakest decision areas, committed to actions that will improve our decision-making, and became accountability partners to each other. If you know a middle or high school girl who could use support making better decisions, invite her to join The Cocoon, an online community of women and girls working together to grow as leaders and achieve our dreams!
