The B'More DIAMONDS Girls Circle Summer 2016 Retreat
The DIAMONDS Girls Circle program was founded with the strong conviction that every girl has the ability to reach her highest personal, educational and professional potential. But for many, this requires a personal and community leadership road map and the enabling environment (supportive structure) for such success.
The retreat is our entry point into this three tier program for girls ages 11 to 16. Each cohort of girls participates in a week long retreat, as their initiation into the program; upon completion of the retreat, the girls enter the Green level with aspirations to advance to the next level each year (Green, White & Blue). Girls who participate in the retreat receive guidance and coaching to help them create their personal road map to success through fun and educational activities. Upon completion of the retreat, the girls will be assigned Peer Motivators who will serve as coaches to the girls and help guide them to achieve their academic and social goals.

A WORD FROM OUR CEO
Dear Friends & Supporters:
We are excited to bring you the good news that we are offering our youth leadership development program for girls in Baltimore this Summer 2016, the B'More DIAMONDS Girls Circe!
We started the DIAMONDS Girls Circle program in 2009 and piloted the B'More sub program in 2014 with a small number of girls in Baltimore City. We are now ready to expand and serve more girls in Baltimore and surrounding areas.
Through this program, we are taking a proactive approach to engage girls in fun learning activities that help them build confidence, make positive and healthy choices, learn practical life skills, such as, exploring communication and relationship building models, exploring ways of dealing with bullying, peer pressure, media influences and other issues that hinder girls' healthy growth.
We take this opportunity to invite you to join us in this cause by doing one or more of the following:
