Default Group of Middle School Girls

Hey Everyone,

Well as some of you know I work at a middle school. We had an incident in where 8 girls ran out of the school to go to two different skipping parties. We caught them before they were able to get to their destination. After this my self and the Paretn Liason spoke to them and we realized theat a lot of them have a lot of problems at home as well as at school and most of them are just seeking attention. Most of them asked us to form a group of just them and all of them being Latinas they started coming up with different ideas in what to do. I would like to keep them from thinking of this group as just a place to have fun but to see it as some where were they can be themselves, show all of their intellengience. Its my first time actually working on something like this and I am very excited as well as Sandy (Parent Liason of the school) but we want to go in the right path and help these girls out in everyway we can to keep them from getting into trouble and improve their grades. If you guys have any ideas or something that could help us help these girls. I would really appreciate it.

Thanks
Rozi

@ Cal, i figured it was going to be something bad liek them being whores or something too.

So, only 8 girls in this group? And after being caught they want to start a group?

I dont know what you can do, but i wouldnt let them think it is a hang out place to chill. Thats like rewarding them for getting into trouble.

Make them write in a journal like in the movie Freedom Writers.

^^I love that movie

I agree with girly, some kind of after school activity like writing is a good one.

SadTraviesa, how old are these girls and what grade are they in?

What kind of problems are they having at home?

Will they have permission from their parents to be in this group?

How about them volunteering at a Hospital or at a Church as a group?

Start an after-school mentoring program. Contact Chicana/Latina organizations at your local Community College or University and see if they'd be interested in mentoring these girls after school. They could talk to them about a wide range of subjects, from school and eating habits, to access to higher education and more.

This is what my old organization does at UCLA. If you have any specific questions let me know.

lol...tears...jumping...people...< Whoa lol



Uh, I look into my sister about this...she's been through shit like this since middle school. She's tried in-school mentoring, after school sports/activities, home counseling program, talking with Irving. Ain't shit worked, either it's the way things are done, or it's her. I think she's looking for a job, dropping out, or both. I personally hope she changes her mind and gets right(go to school), instead she skips to go hang with her bf; so she better get a job and help out the family or gtfo, you know; she has had many chances, given dummy-proof guidance, reasoning, examples. I feel dumb for believing she'll change, she's my sister no la haces pendeja; I think theses kids are having a hard time believing in themselves, giving them all these talks, making them do all these things are as good as telling a toddler fairy tales and believing in Santa; I think we're being too soft with some of them, and not as in we going to need to whoop they're asses; but as in throwing them into the "real" world, of course with a rope to pull them back. I think it's gonna take more surveys, studies, research, programs, etc...to figure these guys out, drop out rates are harsh, also the education system might need some tweeks.
