Held during the university’s “Alternative Service Break,” a time that students devote their fall, winter, and spring breaks to service and civic activities in communities, the Six Brown Chicks will lead discussions on bullying and self empowerment. The Six Brown Chicks will serve as mentors during the event as well.
Dream B.I.G. 2013 will be hosted by student coordinators and mentors for 50 girls in 7th – 12th grades from the Marvell/Elaine school district. The three-day overnight girl empowerment camp will be held at Mt. Sequoyah and the University of Arkansas campus.
“We are truly excited to carry out our mission during the University of Arkansas’ Spring Break. We support Dream B.I.G and their endeavors to touch the lives of high school girls in need,” Zondra Hughes, CEO of the Six Brown Chicks explained.
The Six Brown Chicks’ mission is to share their stories of strength in the name of service.
