Girl Talk Workshops
BEE LEGACY host six workshops, ''Girl Talk Sessions'', held monthly throughout each school year. GTS's take place once a month at St. Katherine Drexel Prep (formally XUP). The first two hours include a diverse themed lesson plan, topical dialogues, and take away assignments. Examples includes: Images of women in reality TV, financial literacy for women, and building your personal brand. The third hour is where we have ''Girl Talk'' in which we provide a full lunch and allow the girls to discuss whatever is going on in their lives. Eating together over a good meal creates an atmosphere of sharing and openness the ladies really respond to !
Legacy Retreat Weekend
THE RETREAT IS UNIQUE AND DIFFERENT FROM THE WORKSHOPS IN VARIOUS WAYS. REMOVING THE GIRLS FROM THEIR FAMILIAR ENVIRONMENT IN NEW ORLEANS, ALLOWS THE PROGRAM LEADERS TO REACH THE PARTICIPANTS ON A MORE INTIMATE LEVEL. IT ALSO OPENS THE WORLD FURTHER FOR THE PARTICIPANTS, MANY OF WHICH HAVE NEVER LEFT THE CITY OR SURROUNDING AREAS. ACTIVITIES THAT TAKE PLACE AT THE RETREAT ARE BIKE RACING, LONG WALKS ON THE BEACH, MUSIC PRODUCTION CLASSES AND THE ANNUAL TALENT SHOW.
Bee Legacy Bucks
BEE LEGACY BUCKS IS OUR PROGRAM'S CURRENCY AND THE BASIS OF OUR REWARD SYSTEM. PARTICIPANTS EARN THESE THROUGH ATTENDANCE, PARTICIPATION, AND ASSIGNMENTS COMPLETION. AS MENTIONED ABOVE, THESE ALSO SERVE AS A QUALIFIER FOR THE LEGACY RETREAT WEEKEND. IT'S IMPORTANT TO NOTE THAT THESE BUCKS HAVE A VERY STRONG VALUE AS THEY ARE REDEEMED AT THE RETREATS'S BL SILENT AUCTION FILLED WITH GREAT PRIZES SUCH AS IPADS, CONCERT TICKETS, BEATS BY DRE SPEAKERS, AND PLENTY MORE !
