EUGENE, Ore. – The 10th annual Girls Rule event welcomed young women and parents to Churchill High School Saturday.
The event was hosted by Ophelia’s Place – an organization geared toward helping young women.
Organizers said more than 130 people attended to participate in fun, life-building exercises.
Mothers and daughters practiced rock and roll and studied science together.
Organizers said this event is important to teach adolescent girls life lessons.
“Promote healthy relationships between a girl and that supportive adult in her life and have a day for them to, you know, have some hands-on activities and fun classes together,” said Celeste Kandleman, communications coordinator at Ophelia’s Place.
Kandleman said they will have year-round events for girls ages 10 to 18 years old. For more information, check out the Ophelia’s Place calendar.
