After School 'to Go' Spring 2017: Week 11


After School To Go ended the semester by highlighting students’ successes and presenting each club’s Showcase event!


Girls chose their favorite activities from this semester and recreated them for parents and teachers to observe and ask questions. Each small group became experts in their activity and career and did a fantastic job of showing what they had learned at After School To Go!

Girlstart Clipboards

As the semester comes to a close, Girlstart To-Go students are planning for their future! During this clipboard activity, each student thought critically about their dreams and set stepwise goals to shoot for throughout their academic and professional careers.

STEM Crew leaders engaged their students in a discussion about their dreams and passions. Crew leaders asked girls about their favorite school subjects, where they envisioned themselves after college, and what topics made them feel excited. Groups talked about the steps that each individual person would need to take in order to reach their goals, as well as the obstacles that could stand in the way.

Dream Boxes

As the year is coming to a close the girls spent their second to last Girlstart meeting talking and writing about their future! 


The club leaders began by asking the girls what they wanted to accomplish the next school year, then in middle school, high school, college and finally what their dream job is. For middle school and high school the girls’ goals ranged from joining band to playing soccer and getting good grades. When it came to dream jobs many wanted to be veterinarians, surgeons and teachers. While others said singers, engineers, scientists and one girl even said she wanted to become so smart she would be famous.
