Girls Empowerment Academy Capstone Projects
Throughout their sessions in the program, the Girls have created projects showcasing what they have learned from their experience. Their projects will be inspired by the GEA Capstone three-part curriculum, which focuses on Creative Digital Design, Collaborative Experience, and Social Impact.
Creative Digital Design: The girls complete digital vision boards showcasing their dreams and aspirations for their future selves. The girls completed these projects using the graphic designing software, Canva, and other platforms like Pinterest and Google Images.
Collaborative Experience: As a group, the girls will share an experience within their community and document it through photography, videography, or scribing. This year, our girls explored the historical Lexington Market in Baltimore, MD, through an escorted tour and met with merchants who were featured in the GoDaddy series, Made In America. They were also given lunch vouchers to enjoy new cuisines offered in the renovated market! This experience
was documented through disposable cameras.
Social Impact: Our girls undergo online safety training through Google’s Be. Internet Awesome Curriculum to prepare for this portion. This curriculum is combined with our own Online Safety curriculum curated by our Marketing and Communications Team. Under social impact, the girls chose one social problem that affects themselves, their family, school, or community, and create a Public Service Announcement (PSA) to raise awareness for it. Given parental consent, these PSAs are shared through social media platforms like Instagram and Youtube Shorts.
