The Girls’ Club
The Girls’ Club is a social outlet and supportive group for at-risk girls, ages 11-15 that live in predominantly minority Durham communities. The club meets in community centers, is led by Duke women, and provides weekly mentoring, seminars, and field trips during the academic year. The Girls’ Club is supported by Duke’s Office of Community Affairs. The original founders were awarded the Samuel DuBois Cook Society Award for undergraduates in February 2005 based on their work on this project.
