She's the First

She’s the First {Harwood} is a chapter of the international organization, She’s the First. She’s the First provides scholarships to girls in low-income countries in order for them to be the first in their families to attend school. At Harwood, we support She’s the First in many ways. We communicate with a pen-pal, Rispa from Tanzania, who is receiving scholarships from our club. We also hold read alouds within the community to raise awareness about women’s education, conduct fundraisers to raise scholarship money, and operate an active Instagram account. On top of this, all members of She’s the First have the opportunity to attend a three-day summit in New York City over the summer. At this summit, you can learn about global citizenship, leadership development, and community engagement while meeting people from all over the country with your same interests. She’s the First {Harwood} meets every Wednesday morning before school, 7:30. Be there! If interested, please email Madeline Strasser ([email protected]).
