"I have heard first hand from many families helped by BGYA in sending their children to Summer Camp; participating in sports; and helping them to take drivers training. They have shared with me that these experiences have been life changing for their children."

Girls Stand Strong

Writer's Unite

An empowering confidence-building program for girls 6th through 8th grade; this is a four week  program. The fourth week  parents will be invited to join for a celebration. Topics include: friendships & relationships, stress management, peer to peer pressure, self-esteem, decision-making skills, and social media. 

Do you love writing? Want to find people in your community who enjoy writing? Join local author and reporter Shelby Stewart-Soldan for this summer writing series.


Every week we'll spend a little bit talking about an aspect of writing (such as writing tense, point of view, expressing an emotion, format, dialogue, etc.) and then we'll put pen to paper (or fingers to keyboards) and work on our own projects. Shelby will be there to help formulate ideas, answer questions, and work through writing issues that arise to help build writing skills. At the end of each session, anyone can share what they wrote with the group (or not) and get constructive and positive feedback.


This program is sponsored by the Brandon Groveland Youth Assistance. Ages 12-17.
