CREATE matches Colorado College students with Mann Middle School girls to engage in creative, imaginative and experiential activities. The goal is to help the girls find a passion and through this passion build self-confidence. Potential Activities include book making, yoga, dance, song writing/poetry, music, painting, photography, pottery, jewelry making, and weaving.
CREATE intends to establish a safe and inspiring atmosphere that encourages personal exploration. We will work as a large group, as well as in small groups to give the girls both individual attention and the opportunity to work with their peers.
CREATE mentors bring a group of 12 mentees to the CC campus on the first and third Wednesday of each block from 3:00-5:00

"I devote time to CREATE, because I believe it is an important program and I enjoy the activities we do with the girls. The CC girls chosen for the program are positive role models for the Mann Middle School girls, who are at a very impressionable age. The topics we discuss and the friendships we develop prove meaningful for both the CC girls and the Mann middle-schoolers. "
