Teens Take New York
Fri, Jul 14, 2017, 6:00 AM – Sat, Jul 15, 2017, 10:00 PM EDT
This is an overnight social-emotional development retreat for teen girls, age 12-17. Social and emotional intelligence involves understanding your feelings and behaviors, as well as those of others, and applying this knowledge to your interactions and relationships. Research has shown that those with high emotional intelligence have better attention skills and fewer learning problems, and are generally more successful in academic and workplace settings. The purpose of this retreat is to increase emotional intelligence amongst all participants, while exposing them to cultural, academic, and social enrichment. In addition to shopping, social activities, and exploring life in the Big City, young ladies will attend various personal development workshops to perpetuate individual and collective growth.
The total Cost of the Overnight Retreat is $275 (Limited Number of Early Bird Tickets Available for $250) for each participant, which covers roundtrip transportation from Washington, DC to New York City, an overnight stay in a hotel in Manhattan, meals, activities, workshop materials, t-shirts, and "Swag Bags" with personal hygiene and wellness items.
Workshop Topics will include:
"Building Healthy Relationships"
"Prayer and Meditation"
"Social Media Branding"
