They did an anti-bullying workshop at my daughter's school. My daughter volunteered to participate in a scenario. The scenario decided on made my daughter uncomfortable for personal and religious reasons. She stated she did not want to do the scenario and she tries to sit down. She felt pressured into doing the scenario anyway and came home upset. I contacted Ms. Funk, the director overseeing this event, and she was offended that my daughter actually felt a bit "bullied". She denied my daughter tried to excuse herself but my daughter had made it clear she did not want to do the scenario. Ms. Funk assured me she gave my daughter valuable skills, that sounds arrogant and quite exaggerated.
Sent my daughter and a few friends to this workshop. Each girl had a wonderful experience. They all are excited to attend again next year. It was awesome for me to be there as a volunteer to witness these girls open up and work together and see their worth through the lessons taught there. My daughters favorite part was self-defense. I look forward to future workshops! I love all that Ivy Girl Academy stands for and support the vision of helping these young ladies find their inner strength as well as prepare for the future and their roles as mothers and leaders. Exceptional!
I was very impressed with Ivy Girl Academy. The things I learned made have made a huge impact in my life. The way this program is run is very professional and I enjoyed every hour I spent. I think that every girl of any age should have a chance to go to this program. Being in a time were there are so many negative influence around, going to the Ivy Girl Academy helped me to understand that I have much potential in this life. It helped me realize that I am important and that I can have a good impact on the world. I was learned values and principals that I know I will teach my future children. I recommend this program to anyone!
The Ivy Girl Academy is a remarkable tool serving young girls. In a time when these girls are being bombarded by false images in advertising and pressured at school and other venues, or perhaps even struggling at home, Ivy Girl Academy teaches them valuable skills and techniques for being strong and valiant. It helps them strengthen their own value and self worth; it encourages pride in self; it teaches valuable tools to stand up for themselves; it enables courage, strength and hope; it teaches correct principles. What a gift this is to our young, impressionable future leaders and mothers.
