A New Season
Happy Women's Herstory Month, Butterfly Dreamz Tribe!
March is the month of my grandmother's birthday, the start of spring, and the "beginning of new beginnings" as we get closer to graduations, warm weather, and a new season. Throughout this month, our girls will be preparing for growth and transition.
Starting Thursday, March 11th at 5:30 PM EST, we'll be hosting weekly yoga sessions for teen girls and mentors, in partnership with I'm So Yoga Newark. Attendance is free for Cocoon Club members and non-members can donate to join. We hope to see you there!
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.
