The mission of the Hance Family Foundation’s Beautiful Me program is to extend the lessons which the Hance sisters, Emma, Alyson, and Katie, taught through their examples—that being comfortable with who you are makes you a better sister, daughter, and friend.
This project is designed to teach girls of all ages how to think positively and with assurance about their bodies, their skills, and their relationships with others. A curriculum based program administered in three hour-long sessions by a qualified teacher or social worker designed around three core content areas: Emma’s Example, Alyson’s Art, and Katie’s Kindness.
The instructors guide the conversations to also include important friendship-building skills and key concepts necessary for building and protecting the girls’ individual gifts.
If your daughter is interested in this program and is a student at Sewanhaka High School, contact Social Studies teacher Diane Ventura 516-488-9632 for information.
