The Southern University Ag Center’s Youth Educational Support (Y.E.S.) Program in Orleans Parish and the Doris Sisters Program will host a Supporting Physical Activities (SPA) Healthy Living Program for Girls on April 30 from 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. in the Mary D. Coghill Charter School Gym, 4617 Mirabeau Avenue, New Orleans, LA 70126.

The event is free and open to girls between the ages of 11 – 18 who are 4-H Club members in New Orleans and/or participant with the Doris Sisters Program.

The SPA Day event will cover the topics of: Business101, Grooming, Nail Care and Spa Treatments, Exercise and Fitness, and Social Media Etiquette.

There will also be healthy food demonstrations and the young ladies will participate in an etiquette luncheon.

Parents are welcome to stay during the event.

The Y.E.S. Program is an after-school enrichment initiative that works with families that have limited resources. The program’s goals are to expand and cultivate the need for family and community involvement, develop positive self-concept (self-esteem) among youth, enrich and empower youth, identify alternative methods for redirecting undesirable behavior while applying positive discipline techniques and building on the strengths and interest of the youth.

The Doris Sisters Program is a mentoring program designed to cultivate, unify, educate and inspire young ladies through cooperative learning experiences and community service opportunities.
