Girls' LEAP Open House Nov. 2nd

Girls’ LEAP Self-Defense, the city’s only non-profit providing personal safety training to inner-city girls, invites the public to an Open House on November 2nd from 5:30 to 7:30 PM, as Mayor Menino, Girls’ LEAP staff and supporters cut the ribbon on their new Girls’ Empowerment Zone in Dorchester.

Girls’ LEAP has helped to keep more than 7,500 girls ages 8-18 safe and strong through its unique personal safety curriculum since 2000. The organization recently relocated both its administrative offices and its Teen Mentor and Teaching Women Center to the St. Mark's School Annex in Dorchester. The new space, sponsored by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts, also provides enough room for Girls’ LEAP to host workshops and community meetings.

The event is at 197A Centre Street, Dorchester and will feature personal safety demonstrations, raffles and prizes, food and drink along with kid friendly activities.

RSVP to or call 617-514-4285.
