A recent study by the Girl Scout Research Institute found that girls define their health in holistic terms, and place equal value on emotional and physical well-being. Uniquely ME! The Girl Scout/Dove Self-Esteem Program helps girls feel better about themselves by helping them develop the skills necessary to face life's challenges. The core program curriculum, which integrates the latest research from the Girl Scout Research Institute, consists of activity booklets that guide girls through simple exercises that help them understand and build self-esteem.
The Uniquely ME! booklets include exercises about recognizing one's strengths and best attributes, handling peer pressure, healthy eating habits, hygiene, general wellness, exercise, and identifying core values and personal interests. Additional information about eating disorders, the power of positive thinking, relationship, and stress is also available to girls, on an age-appropriate basis.
Girls in grades 4th through 6th are invited to participate in this event. The event will take place at the Antlers Public Library, 104 SE 2nd Street, on June 26, July 3 and July 17 from 12:30 p.m. until 2:00 p.m.
A special session will be held on July 24th with a tea party, spa treatment, photo shoot and special speaker, Miss Oklahoma first-runner up - Damaris Pierce. Time and location of this event will be announced at the last session.
The cost is free for Girl Scouts and $12 for non-Girl Scouts, to cover membership fee. All participants must register for the event. Registration forms can be picked up at the Antlers Girl Scout office located at 804 E Main, Ste 2, Tuesday or Thursday from 9:00 a.m. to noon. Registration deadline is June 25. Register early as limited space is available.
