ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The Albany Boys and Girls club kicked off a new campaign, aimed at boosting the confidence of teens.
The "I am Beautiful" campaign is to inspire teen girls to adopt healthy attitudes and lifestyles through a new empowerment and self-esteem enhancement program.
Marvin Laster of the Boys & Girls Club of Albany said, "Young ladies that will be participating in the program will be going through a series of empowerment sessions, also leadership development sessions, career, education exploration, as well as some healthy lifestyle choices."
The girls also heard from several speakers. Organizers hope to grow this new program and have 100 teenage girls participate in the future.
