League’s Education Action Team will hold a Girls in Government at South Seminole Middle School on September 12, 2017. Volunteers are needed; contact Dede Schaffner, Ed AT Chair, for information and to join the team!
League objectives for the program are to promote civic education and involvement among young people; and to promote a general feeling of empowerment among girls. South Seminole MS is the site of the SCPS Leadership and Global Connections Magnet Program, which seeks opportunities for students to develop self-confidence, independence and effectiveness. The school has more than 40 separate programs to support these goals, including a Leadership Academy program specifically geared to cultural and civic literacy.
