My Gems

Sharon Ife Charles, Deputy Director of the Mediation Center, led a gender specific workshop on self-worth on Saturday, March 21st. "My Gems - The Value of Self-Worth" focused on building self esteem and awareness. Forty young women ages thirteen to eighteen participated in the session. Ms. Charles stressed the importance of valuing your morals and beliefs, and not putting a monetary price on yourself. Each woman has the right to protect herself and say no to unsafe situations. CAMBA's entire 5th Annual "Let's Talk" Youth Conference garnered a total attendance of 225 people. Thanks for spreading the great message!
