About this program


YWCA Carlisle’s Girl Power! Reads is an initiative designed to connect girls in 7th through 10th grades with essays and stories about empowered women. In fall 2020, we will be reading and discussing What I told My Daughter by Nina Tassler.


The program is offered to middle and high school aged girls in 7th through 10th grades attending any school within Cumberland County, and is provided at no cost for families.
