“CHARM  with a  PURPOSE”

Powered by The Charm School Project for Girls, Inc. & Jarvis Moss Shepherd Foundation
Curated for all Brown Girls

Join us for our first inaugural girls retreat, “Charm with a Purpose Girls Retreat, ” taking place September 24th-26th, nestled in Manchester, Maryland at River Rally Ranch.


Our retreat helps promote opportunities that will connect melanin, mindfulness and brown girl magic. The retreat focus areas include team building, self-awareness, confidence building and sisterhood. We will also discuss many topics relevant to the everyday life of a growing girl with intentional workshops. In addition, there will be group discussions, guest speakers and activities to evoke a meaningful experience that empowers your daughter's future. Each session within the retreat will be purposefully facilitated to connect with each participant and provide social-thinking exercises to ensure a weekend of fun experiences and self-awareness. 


All participants will have the weekend to experience a safe and engaging outlet with the opportunity to connect with their peers, discover their inspiration, practice gratitude and embody the motivation to not only be their true selves, but also learn to truly value and appreciate their uniqueness and purpose.
