What’s a PowHER Night? G3 PowHER Nights are a Mother + Daughter Leadership Experience. The entire summer curriculum is devoted to using project management skills to put on an event for the G3 community. This culmination of the summer program is truly a night they will never forget!
What if We Miss a Class? let’s be honest, summer happens. No worries if your daughter is missing classes, we will make them up. Many of the other girls who have signed up will be missing 2-4 classes. Because so much of the summer is self directed and interactive between me and your girl we will be holding make-ups and videoing each class so that she doesn’t miss a beat!
