CASE Grant Winner Announced at Agnes Scott College

This project is a women mentoring group between Agnes Scott College girls and Decatur High School girls. The main focus is girls who are at-risk of dropping out of school, becoming teen-age mothers, succumbing to peer-pressure to engage in illicit drug use or other deviant behaviors. The students would work to empower and support the young women with holding workshops on self-improvement, team-building exercises, field trips, speakers, journaling, academic tutoring, and assistance with filling out college applications, applying for scholarships, taking the ACT/SAT and FAFSA. It strives to decrease the number of teen girls that dropout of school, and empower those who complete high school to reach for the stars knowing that they have a support system in Strong Sistas for the rest of their lives.
