"there is no force equal to a woman determined to rise"
-W.E. B Dubois
The Girls Build team at Sylmar Charter High School is made up of a group of young women who want to make an impact in their community, whose members believe in the power of literacy and action to improve their communities and our world. The purpose of the Girls Build team is to spread awareness about the importance of pre-registration, registration, voter turnout, and to cultivate sustained civic engagement. The objectives of the team are to prepare students for academic, professional, and personal success.
This team is needed for young people and the community to learn how to make their voice heard in democracy, learn how government and politics affect their daily lives, and learn about the candidates and issues.
The specific events that the Girls Build team will host are a voter registration drive and a conference for young women to enhance their leadership potential.
We will also host monthly events to inform students of the importance of volunteering, knowing their representatives, becoming involved with civic issues, and empowering students with the skills they need to be successful in the real world.
Sylmar CHS' Girls Build Club meets at least every Friday during lunch to plan, prepare and innovate new ways of sparking motivation within the community and empowering young leaders! We have hosted empowering events to for students develop valuable and necessary skills to succeed in the future!
