The Girls Achieve® Activity Book was originally designed as a resource and educational supplement for parents, classrooms, after-school programs, summer camps, and outreach organizations. But the self-directed book for tween and young teen girls is more useful than ever right now.
This 128-page book for girls aged 9-14 years encourages creativity, promotes scholarship, and builds confidence. It’s filled with more than 60 interactive educational activities, including: Find Your Future, The Name Game, Fashion Sense, We Are Family, Dollars and Cents, A New Attitude, Secrets, and more.
Authored by Emmy Award-winning TV education reporter and former teacher Elleanor Jean Hendley, this book fosters and celebrates creativity, self-esteem, self-expression, women’s and girls’ rights, inquisitiveness, meaningful female friendships, strong work ethic, and higher education for young women.
In 1985 while working full-time in television news, Ms. Hendley founded Teenshop, Inc.® a nationally-recognized college preparatory and life skills nonprofit weekend program that prepares ‘girls with goals®’ for college and careers. Teenshop has five chapters in three states – California, New Jersey and Pennsylvania – and more than eight thousand girls have been enrolled, all of whom matriculate to college.
Teenshop was the catalyst for Girls Achieve® , a school day workshop series Ms. Hendley created in 2005 after leaving television news. Girls Achieve offers curriculum-support and enrichments workshops. The Girls Achieve® brand has expanded to include the Girls Achieve® Activity Book and a line of consumer products.
