How to Be a Girl Camp

How to Be a Girl...

I had the honor of helping Josefa Salinas, Community Affairs Director for Hot 92.3, with her annual How to Be a Girl Camp. Me and a few others stayed overnight at California State University, San Bernardino, for 4 days and 3 nights to help counsel, guide and mentor over 30 girls ages 11-17, to become young ladies. We were up at 6am and had activities lined up until 10pm. We all came together to take the young women through everything they need to know to be confident, well put together and ready to present themselves to the world.

The camp included classes on health, finance, personal development and life skills! The girls tackled visual poise, public speaking, personal finance, healthy relationships, hair, makeup, wardrobe and the ultimate class: Girl 101 and much more!

This isn’t the first time I’ve helped with the How to Be a Girl Camp and it will not be the last. It was such a rewarding experience and I would do it again in a heartbeat! I urge everyone to get involved in their community and help guide young children. What ever knowledge you pass on to one child can be passed on from them to another child. Each one teach one!


Conversations With Caprice: Rooted For Life Mentoring Program

Rooted For Life (RFL) Mentoring Program’s Mission Statement is as follows: “Rooted For Life is an educationally based nonprofit committed to enhancing the lives of our Community’s Youth, through integrity building programs, and life skills resources.” And the program offers just that through classes, group outings and guest speakers.

I sat with the RFL Founder, Shelley Jones, to discuss what the program offers and future goals for the organization. Her daughter and scholar, Bree Jones, gave her testimony about RFL and shares advice for future scholars.

I was apart of this amazing program for the 2011-2012 year and it was a rewarding experience. Doing good things for others makes YOU feel good.  So get involved! To contribute, or become a mentor/scholar, please go to www.RootedForLife.Org
