Skill Building Classes for Girls

Ophelia’s Place Skill-Building program strives to empower, educate, and support girls ages 10-18 by offering a variety of classes, clubs, and one-time events throughout the academic year (September through June). Skill-Building activities provide girls opportunities to pursue special interests in a safe and supportive environment with their peers, and teaches them life-long skills.

  • Self-care/health
  • Technology/science
