Our first Empower Huddle at Hopkins will be led by our Empower coaches and select Hopkins High School girls. The coaches at this event include Maggie Lund, 6th grade teacher at Hopkins Eisenhower Elementary, Laura Lee, math teacher at Hopkins West Junior High, Lauren Wester, science teacher at Hopkins West Junior High, and Nicole Pierce, school counselor at Cologne Academy. We are excited for what our day has to offer!
At the Empower Huddle at Hopkins, girls will learn how to maintain, navigate, and grow their self-confidence during the middle school or junior high years. Being popular, social media, and confidence all influence one another and are part of the daily junior high experience. We will have community building activities, a panel of high school girls to share their junior high experiences as it relates to social media, exercises on how to use positive self-talk, and a packet of resources for girls to take home. Sticking with the theme, we will be taking many photos, using Instagram to post photos from the event, using Snapchat to show all we are learning, and Tweeting updates, all in an effort to teach girls how to feel empowered and confident through social media!
What can I bring into the event?
Girls need to bring a snack and a water bottle. We will supply other materials. Also, please wear casual clothing.
How can I contact the organizer with any questions?
If you have any questions, please email Lauren Wester at firstname.lastname@example.org
Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?
Nope! We will have a digital list of all attendees.
