What a turnout! The incoming class at St. Joseph’s College in West Hartford, CT, (an all Women’s school) was to attend the “Can I Kiss You?” program last night on their campus. Thanks to the word getting out around campus, many of the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th year students also attended with the incoming class to create a standing-room only full of energy, commitment to make a difference, and lots of fun.
This was one of the best groups we had seen all year. The women immediately became actively involved in the presentation and you could see an obvious commitment to wanting to make a difference. At one point in the program, all together as a group they made a verbal oath to end all degradation of women through language. The overwhelming numbers of people after the program who stuck around to continue the conversation and get more resources was inspiring.
We started the day in an interactive train the trainer session with 22 females from campus. The women were involved with residence life or as peer mentors. Based on their questions, we took an in-depth look at real-life situations, challenges, and questions they are presented with a daily basis as student leaders. Then, we came up with a realistic and flexible solutions to help their fellow students.
Tracy and Tamara did a fantastic job putting the event together. A special thanks for a wonderful dinner with the three of you. Your love for your campus and your students is apparent within minutes of sitting down with the 2 of you. Your students are blessed to have such caring and passionate professionals working on their behalf. Thanks for all you do!
Here is the neat video they created to spread a powerful message:
