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.
