Colored Girls Are Cover Girls

After School Matters

Colored Girls Are Cover Girls works exclusively with girls of color to address issues that they are confronted with on a daily basis. Issues such as HIV/AIDS, communication, trust relationships and other at-risk behaviors are the components leading to the final production. Our program offers education through performance. Each performance is a combination of poetry, skits and monologues along with music and dance. Colored Girls Are Cover Girls is geared towards teens and young adults to openly discuss issues of risky behaviors, by utilizing hip-hop and spoken word as tools to promote our message of prevention as a choice in risk reduction. We hope to promote positive lifestyle choices. In the program our goal is to build healthy relationships among adolescent girls to decrease at risk-behaviors leading to violence. Trust and open communication is the foundation of the program so that the creative process can move freely while creating a safe space for self disclosure. With this process teens build performance pieces around their own life experiences. This years theme will be called Speak Life giving each a voice to speak to their own generation while growing in leadership. Speak Life will be an expression of the world they see around them today and the change they want to inspire for tomorrow.
