The Metro Atlanta Chapter of the Red Cross was invited to participate in the Atlanta Girls’ School Winterim, an opportunity for students to explore exciting topics not traditionally found in a school curriculum.
Red Cross representatives taught small groups of middle school girls in 90-minute blocks over several days. Topics included the Red Cross mission and history, disaster preparedness, first aid/CPR and babysitting.
“It was a wonderful experience,” says Natalie Johnston-Russell, Development Officer. “The girls quickly applied the information we shared with them. They now know what it means to have a plan, make a kit and be informed; and, hopefully, they brought that message home as new ‘Masters of Disaster’.”
The Metropolitan Atlanta Chapter offers educational programs to any organization throughout the year.
