15 girls will be chosen to go through a 3 day intensive workshop — presented by Erin Tarr of Be the Benchmark and Jenette Jurczyk, Creative Director of That’s What She Said — where they will develop, write and ultimately perform their own personal story on the stage with the support and encouragement of their friends, family, and fellow teens.

Each girl nominated will also have to fill out an Application Form.

Building Empowerment Through Empathy

In today’s social and political climate it is more important than ever that young people, young girls especially, learn to speak up, share, and listen to each other’s stories to understand compassion and the importance of human connections. Through the TWTS experience, fifteen young girls will have the opportunity to learn more about themselves, their passions and communication styles, and explore how their unique attributes will help them to make a positive impact on the world, while growing in empathy for others.
