Girls Inc. of the Seacoast Area Boosts Girls’ Economic Knowledge With New Entreprenurship Program

Innovative Program Introduces Girls to Business Ownership Concepts and Skills, Encourages Economic Independence

Dec. 19, 2012 - PRLog -- NEWBURYPORT, Mass., December 19, 2012 - Girls Inc. of the Seacoast Area, a program of the Jeanne Geiger Crisis Center, is proud to implement Girls Inc. Exploring Entrepreneurial Experiences (E3), a program encouraging girls to explore business ownership as a possibility for their present and future.  Girls Inc. of the Seacoast Area was selected to pilot the newest version of E3 which includes social entrepreneurship, addressing social problems with a business approach.

Girls Inc. E3 is for girls ages 12 - 15 and will take place on January 12, 2013 at the Newburyport Public Library from 9:00-4:45; girls must stay for the entire workshop.  The event is free but has limited spaces so girls must register in advance and will be accepted on a first come first served basis.

“This is a great program that provides girls with the encouragement and opportunity to investigate their own businesses.  Participation of local entrepreneurs always gets the girls engaged and inspired,” says Sabra Dow, Program Director, Girls Inc. of the Seacoast Area.”  

Girls Inc. E3 introduces girls ages 12 - 15 to entrepreneurial concepts and business planning while challenging them to envision themselves as innovators. It also helps girls discover role models in other girls and women who are successful business owners.

Girls Inc. of the Seacoast Area (serving Amesbury, Georgetown, Groveland, Ipswich, Merrimac, Newbury, Newburyport, Rowley, Salisbury and West Newbury) finds that girls and their parents place a high value  on economic literacy and entrepreneurship education for girls, and thus has offered a variety of Economic Literacy opportunities for girls throughout our local communities:  Dollars, Sense and Me for 4th and 5th grade girls at Winthrop Elementary in Ipswich; Equal Earners Savvy Spenders for Triton Middle School girls; Money Talks for girls and their parents for girls ages 11-13 in all of the communities it serves, and E3 in all communities.  To sign up for E3or for more information about Girls Inc. of the Seacoast area, contact Sabra Dow, Program Director, Girls Inc. of the Seacoast Area at 978-465-1268
