Girls Clubs for K-6th Grades

At the heart of our mission is the message of St. Josemaría Escrivá, founder of Opus Dei, that each of us is a child of God, a person of intrinsic value, and that God comes to meet us in the ordinary realities and challenges of our daily life. We seek to help girls learn how to do the ordinary tasks of each day extraordinarily well, thereby making their work more meaningful and transforming it into service for others.

Girls clubs provide a place where girls can grow, learn, have fun, and develop confidence in their ability to make a difference in the world.

Meetings

Each club is a place where girls learn how to grow in virtue and make lasting friendships.  The younger girls often read books to learn about particular virtues.  Older girls hear talks and act out skits or brainstorm together about how to live a particular virtue in different situations.  Afterwards, the girls form a simple, practical resolution to live during the month, such as making their bed in the morning, waking up on time, or doing chores without being asked.  Activities vary by club but can include arts and crafts, cooking, home arts, service projects, and cultural excursions.  These monthly meetings are a wonderful chance for the girls to have fun with their friends, and through the years, build stronger and deeper friendships.

Staff

Leadership clubs support the work of parents in the formation of their children and are led by women who attend programs offered by Arborlea Study Center. High school and college women, many of whom are former club members, serve as club helpers and give talks on virtue and character development and assist with activities.
