Foxcroft Students to Participate in Empowering Female Voices Program

Foxcroft students have been invited to take part in a six-part online workshop titled "Empowering Female Voices" offered to girls in grades 9-12 nationwide and hosted by Close Up and the Hockaday Institute for Social Impact. Focused on civic engagement and the issues shaping the 2020 presidential election, the program sessions will run every Thursday beginning today, October 1, through November 5. Students will then participate in a debriefing session held by History teachers John Scharfenberg and Erika Page each Friday.
Nine Foxcroft students will be participating:
  • Elsie R. ’21
  • Hays T. ’21
  • Maddy G. ’22
  • Avery H. ’23
  • Danielle P. ’23
  • Olivia W. ’23
  • Sarah F. ’24
  • Sofia R. ’24
  • Mimi W. ’24
Inspired by the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment and with the aim "to help students develop empathy for the perspectives of others and build the skills and confidence to empower a generation of female change-makers by engaging girls from different backgrounds in meaningful dialogue," this program is perfectly aligned with Foxcroft’s 2020-21 theme of “Use Your Voice for Good: Civic Service and Social Action.”
