It will allow girls to have real conversations about how they’re doing, check in with Girls LEAD! staff they miss, and empower them to have a voice in how the program moves forward. “We want to empower them to create a healing path toward the future.” Email us at girlslead@ywcadayton.org to request the chat link.

Special June 5 edition: We have collaborated with Levitt Pavilion Dayton to bring Kyshona Music to the weekly Girls LEAD! Check-In Chat where she will chat with girls about songwriting and the music industry (and, yes, probably perform!).
