An after-school program aimed at helping young girls develop positive life skills held a back to school bash in Waterloo this afternoon.
"We Strive" is looking to serve any girl in the Cedar Valley between five and 18 years old.
The program's founder, Amber Collins, says the goal is to help the girls be successful students and citizens.
"We work on their self esteem, their communication skills, their anger management. If they're having an issue in school we challenge them to identify that area they need to work on," said Collins.
A parent of one of the girls in the "We Strive" program says her daughter has had a very positive experience.
"I think it has helped her a lot. Before she was kind of withdrawn and angry, but since she has been in the program..it has changed her quite a bit."
The program is currently serving 50 girls, but it is looking to expand.
