These are the Girl Power and Real Talk workshops. These workshops are comprehensive programs that equip teens with knowledge and the tools to take a long-term view with respect to their life goals; to see the importance of avoiding situations that could negatively affect their future. The Booster Project is a follow-up to those workshops, to reinforce what was taught and discussed in Girl Power and Real Talk in the previous year. The Booster Project is a way to reinforce these valuable lessons by presenting additional material on safe sex, condom use, information on STI’S, as well as the importance of abstaining from sex and valuing oneself.
