For the second year, Because I’m Beautiful Girls Club, Inc. partnered with the City of West Park in our annual beautification project – Cash For Trash. Thank you to the volunteers, B.I.B girls from Watkins Elementary Magnet School for rolling up their sleeves and partaking in this year’s street clean-up along S.W. 56 Avenue from Pembroke Road to McTyre Park. Everyone was enthusiastic and rearing to go at 9:00 a.m. With everyone equipped with the necessary tools of picker, gloves and safety vests all happily went to work.
Because I’m Beautiful is a 501(c)(3) non-profit girls club established in 2004 serving Broward and Miami-Dade County Title One Public Schools. This year-round program operates in conjunction with Sunshine State standards and concentrations in etiquette, life skills, community service and building confidence/selfesteem. With recent issues concerning bullying, the program’s curriculum has added this component to meet the needs of the times. The program teaches the girls that community service is essential to the survival of neighborhoods within the community and serving others at every age builds character and pride.
Coming up in mid-May, B.I.B will host its first conference entitled, Healthy U, Healthy Me: Mind, Body & Soul on Miami-Dade campus on Saturday, May 19, 2012 from 9:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. If you are interested in attending, please feel free to contact firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
