Hardy Girls Newsletter

Girls Rock! Conferences Complete!
400+ middle schoolers and their adult allies from around Maine attended our Girls Rock! Conferences this year - with our first conference in Bangor! We'd like to thank our partners at Waynflete, Alfond Youth Center, and Bangor Parks & Rec for hosting us!

On March 22, we honored six INCREDIBLE Maine girls and heard from Hebh Jamal. Videos of their speeches are coming soon!

Maine Women Magazine Expo

Come support Hardy Girls and hang out at the next Maine Women Magazine Expo. Ticket sales and proceeds support Hardy Girls year-round programming. There'll be workshops, food, fun and indulgence. Make a day of it and give back!

Part of our work is building coalition and identifying allies for girls. We often meet incredible organizations doing important work. We think you should meet them, too! In this section, we will highlight their work. If there are other folks or organizations you think we should meet, let us know! This month, meet:

Maine Women's Lobby Education Fund 

Formerly the Maine Women's Policy Center, the MWL Education Fund has been hosting Girls Day at the Statehouse for over two decades! Hardy Girls has been a part of this event for the last three years. Founded in 1990, the Ed Fund improves the economic, social, and political status of women and girls in Maine through research, public policy, and leadership development. The Ed Fund works for systemic change by organizing, training, and supporting women and girls to effectively participate in the policy-making process. You can read more about the work of the MWL by visiting their website or following them on Facebook.

Are you interested in bring Hardy Girls Healthy Women to your school? We provide customized workshops for girls and adult allies. Typically, our workshops are four, one-hour sessions. We'd love to talk more with you about your school culture, engaging youth in an active role, and assisting adults. Reach out soon, we are already booking into the fall semester!
