"Generation Know*" will be making stops in Hartford on Monday and Tuesday, January 28th and 29th, as part of it's 2013 North American Tour. This "U by Kotex" program is meant to educate growing girls by helping them "break the silence" and learn the facts about their health and changing bodies.
According to a press release:
For every person that gets involved and goes to www.generationknow.com, money will go to the nonprofit charity, Girls for a Change. Up to $500,000 will be donated to help them continue their mission of empowering young women to lead social change in their communities
Teen workshops will be taking place at the Wilson-Gray YMCA Youth & Family Center on Albany Avenue from 6-8pm on Monday and at the YMCA of Greater Hartford on Trumbull Street on Tuesday from 4-6pm. Lifestyle expert and teen journalist, Chelsea Krost, will be leading Tuesday's session, by tackling myths and answering questions, such as: "What is the youngest age that a girl can start her period?"
So, head to the web site...there is even a link with advice for moms about how to talk to our growing daughters.
