Latinitas - A Strong Voice for Latina Youth

Starting our after school clubs, the girls had the chance to get to know one another. The start to all friendships in the clubs begin with setting the right atmosphere by having rules.

As the girls created their own handprints, we went around the table and said one rule they think is important to have a friendly club environment and here is a list of a few of those rules:

  • "Be nice and respectful"
  • "Don't speak when someone else is speaking"
  • "Do not say bad words or hurtful things to others"
  • "Respect the things that do not belong to us"
  • "Encourage one another"
  • "Ask for permission to use the restroom"
  • "Raise your hand" 
  • "Pay attention" 

The girls enjoyed creating a friendship wreath because it helped them understand the importance of being courteous and respectful to others. The friendship wreath is an agreement to grow the friendships in the club by not breaking the rules of what it means to have a friendly club environment.
