Volunteers needed to help "Chicks Play Hard"

Chicks Play Hard is a volunteer-run, non profit organization that strives to build self-confidence in girls by providing them with a nurturing environment to try different activities and develop self expression. Girls ages 9 to 13 participate in workshops led by high school students who are, in turn, mentored by women experts (that's you!). The event encourages the girls to try new and diverse things, learn from positive female role models and-most importantly- have fun.

Chicks Play Hard 2007 is scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 27, at Miller Community Center on Capitol Hill. We are seeking female volunteers (incl. high schoolers in need of community service credits) and are also open for registration for girls ages 9 to 13. This marks the first year that Chicks, an all-volunteer and free event, is officially collaborating with Seattle Parks & Recreation on the event, which will take place from 11 am to 4 pm. Classes lined up so far include creative arts, combat theatre, boxing and writing. We have tentatives for songwriting and we're also looking into rock climbing. Double dutch, a crowd favorite, may again rear its head. The new UW women's basketball coach, Tia Jackson, will serve as our keynote/kick off speaker. Please visit the Chicks Web site (www.chicksplayhard.org) or send an email with "volunteer" in the subject line to chicksplayhard@gmail.com You may also contact co-organizer Mary Guiden directly at MKGSeattle@aol.com
