  • Where did you learn about Be Bold Girls? ​

  • Why did you want to join this club?​

CONTEXT WITHIN THE BROADER TRANSFORM THE NORM PROGRAM

This meeting kicks off Mission 1: To Initiate. As a Student Ambassador (or a Club Coach), you are starting your Be Bold Girls leadership journey!​

In forming this club, you are creating a safe space for club members to share personal experiences and struggles. You may find that some of these experiences are similar to your own, and some are different! Being open to sharing and learning from each other is the first step to identifying common issues that you can work to address together.
