BUENA VISTA, MI — Women Who Blossom, a free summer program for girls, is coming soon to the Buena Vista Community Center.
The program for girls ages 6 to 19 will take place from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from June 20 through Aug. 12.
Participants will learn about career building and networking, etiquette, confidence building and wellness. A banquet will take place at the end of the program, and each girl will receive a certificate upon completion. Admission is free, and breakfast and lunch are provided each day.
DaJanea Tyler, founder of Women Who Blossom, and her assistant, Patrice Henderson, are organizing the event. The Saginaw natives aim to help girls and young women believe and invest in themselves.
“The program means a lot to me because I grew up in Saginaw, Michigan, so I have seen and overcome a lot of struggles,” said Tyler, 22. “Our vision is to create a safe space for women and young ladies in the community. …We want to teach them that if you invest in yourself and in your future, you’ll have a great outcome.”
In-person registration will take place from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Wednesday, June 15, at the Buena Vista Community Center, 1940 S. Outer Drive, and from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Friday, June 17, during the Light Up the City event.
