Girls invited to first ever Girls Empowerment Institute at CLC

Area girls going into 3rd through 8th grade are invited to attend the first ever Girls Empowerment Institute at Central Lakes College. The event runs from 9 a.m-3:30 p.m. on Wednesday, August 7. Parents and guardians are invited to attend closing ceremonies at 2:15 p.m.

This Institute will empower, excite and provide permission for girls to be their best and lead, both off and on the court/field/pool/mat. Girls will have the opportunity to work on skills, as well as participate in hands-on sessions designed to cast away self-doubt and negative messages about what defines being a girl and what it means to be a queen.

A full day of sessions, lunch, fun and powerful messages from some great female role models:

  • Create YOUR own story! Kimberly Pilgrim and Adrienne Benjamin
  • Don’t give up on ME! Jean Martin
  • YOU Can! Jane Peterson
  • Get to know YOU! Shelly Boyum-Breen


Participants should come in clothes to play in. Each girl will receive a Shelly Bean the Sports Queen book to share, a certificate of attendance and their own crown.

Because of support of a grant from the Brainerd Lakes Area Women’s Fund, the cost is only $30. Registration is limited to 75 girls. Deadline to register is Monday, July 29. Contact Jane Peterson for more info jane.peterson@clcmn.edu.

The event is sponsored by CLC Athletics and children’s book author Shelly Boyum-Breen.

There are limited spaces so sign up early here:
