Saturday April 29, 2017

Women Helping Girls Make Choices is a FREE program for fifth and sixth-grade girls that attend school in the DCMO and ONC BOCES service areas. With the collaborative effort of a number of educators and community resources including co-sponsorship and support by the Secondary Education Department at SUNY Oneonta, we are able to offer the program at SUNY Oneonta on Saturday, April 29 2017.


Program Goals:

1) to encourage young women to pursue higher level math and science by creating a link to real world careers;

2) to introduce young women to mentors in non-traditional roles;

3) to inspire self-sufficiency, independence and leadership development;

4) to model career planning and decision making; and

5) to provide positive peer interaction.


The event will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the SUNY Oneonta College. Schools participating will enroll a group up to six students (fifth and sixth grade) and one staff chaperone. We have a maximum capacity of 150 participants.  Schools may register as many groups as they wish on a first come, first serve basis.
