We are excited to offer a new fall mini series featuring three fun events across three weeks. Designed for girls ages 10-12, this series gives girls tools they can use to access their perseverance, selflessness and tenacity to become self-assured, strong young women. Come to all three or choose just one. Each one-hour session will feature an interactive Grace & Grit lesson — focused on that day’s historical heroine — delivered by G&G founder, Heather Stark.
Fall Mini Session | Corpus Christi, TX
COURAGE with Harriet Tubman
SAT, OCT 30 | 10:00-11:00AM
Learn how this slave-turned-emancipator — relying only on sheer courage, the guidance of the North Star and the kindness of abolitionists belonging to The Underground Railroad — led 300 people to freedom.
WISDOM with Sacagawea
SAT, NOV 6 | 10:00-11:00AM
When explorers Lewis and Clark forged a path to the Pacific Ocean, a wise 16-year-old Native American girl named Sacagawea would help to lead them. Not only did she become a symbol of peace on their journey but also a trusted healer who relied on her knowledge of the earth and its gifts to keep the group safe across thousands of miles.
TENACITY with Kate Warne
SAT, NOV 13 | 10:00-11:00AM
When Kate Warne walked into Allan Pinkerton’s office looking for a job, she wasn’t seeking clerical work. Kate wanted to become a detective … and she wasn’t going to take “no” for an answer! Kate relied on her tenacity — refusing to let go when she was focused on a goal.
