B.O.L.D (Beautiful, Outstanding, Ladies with Dreams) is a youth led initiative aimed at encouraging, supporting and empowering young women as they embark on their journey of discovery in identifying themselves and their role within our community. This program offers a safe, inclusive and non-judgmental space for young women to engage in open discussions regarding complex topics such as healthy relationships, body image, social consciousness, self- care, societal pressures, gender roles, the importance of goal setting, and the media. This program also provides an element where the young women involved will be given the opportunity to suggest personal topics of interests that can also be explored. Throughout these workshops various activities and guest speakers and community outings will be organized in order to promote dynamics of leadership, growth, and positive self-image within the group.
