Chef Beth: "I started my culinary adventure when I was the same age as these girls. Learning how to cook brought me independence and confidence in my food choices and within myself. It is my hope that these girls felt brave to try something new, inspired to repeat these new skills again, and empowered to create healthy beautiful food."

We had a great time at Own Your Awesomeness ! Read more about our time there at the link below.

Hi all, I wanted to share an exciting summer opportunity for high school girls in the Philly area! Own Your Awesomeness holds week-long girls empowerment programs that include skill building workshops and discussion of important social issues :-). As a longtime CDWer, I think this program would be a GREAT fit for those who have aged out of CDW and are looking for something to do this summer! I am a board member for this organization and would be happy to answer any questions you might have. Financial aid available!
Hi all, I wanted to share a summer opportunity for high school girls that might be of interest to some in the Folkshul community! Own Your Awesomeness is a week-long girls empowerment program that includes skill building workshops and discussions about important social issues.
