CORE by HGNA 2017
CORE by HGNA is a fun and engaging workshop that will help you create strategies to make your transition to Middle School less stressful while learning more about yourself and staying true to your unique self!
In addition to break-out sessions on self-discovery, self-care and friendships, CORE by HGNA participants will have the opportunity to meet with high school girls who will share insights on how they handled changes in friendships, socializing at lunch, getting to classes on time, choosing seats on the bus, balancing extra-curricular activities with time for homework, and much more.
