Girls Got Tech

We are proud to begin working with three outstanding Girl Scouts Cadettes who are working toward completing their Silver Award of their Cadette Award. Through their relationship with the CommUnity Zone, they will offer tech-tutoring sessions both individually and for small groups at the Riverwoods Senior Living Community here in Lewisburg from March through April 2020. 

Our Tech Tutoring program will give these students an opportunity to develop their leadership, communication, and teaching skills.

Each student will easily be able to teach important aspects of computing to a segment of the population who is not as familiar with technology. The tutors assist seniors in learning how to use technology and to overcome apprehension about technology.

Lessons might include how to e-mail, use an iPhone or iPad and internet search engines, as well as help with photos. Sharing these learning skills that come easily to young adults with older folks help enable seniors to stay connected with family members and the world around them.

This inter-generational program will help these students to strengthen critical thinking and problem-solving skills, improve communication abilities, and interact and share information with a population different from them.

Welcome Lewisburg's Strike Circle
from left to right:  (back row): Julia Kaszuba, Taija Figard, Maddie Redding, Maddy Downs (front row): Lilly Kelly, Hanna Aboueid, Suzie Vo, Paige Kaszuba, Aley Zimmerman-Comas.

We were first introduced to the concept of a strike circle during one of the Lewisburg Sunrise Hub's launch parties, during which leaders of the chapter discussed with us the terrifying reality of climate change, the growing movement behind the Green New Deal, and what we, as high school students, could do to aid said movement. Recognizing that the creation of a resilient and sustainable future is critical (as well as incredibly time sensitive), we excitedly decided to give the program a shot.
Members within the Lewisburg Sunrise Hub have since been providing necessary support throughout the process of establishing our Strike Circle, remaining in constant contact with our host, Paige Kaszuba. As of now, we are learning as much as we can about the Green New Deal and its impact on the effects of climate change - why it's necessary and how to present it as such - in an attempt to become truly informed advocates of a livable future. Our goal is to get at least 25% of the Lewisburg Area High School students we canvass to join us in our strike on Earth Day, April 22nd. Together, we're viewing the big picture - a survivable, sustainable future - as it steadily becomes more necessary, more clear, and more attainable.

Overall, our strike circle is proving beneficial not only through its provision of a mechanism through which to push for necessary change, but also through its strengthening of key leadership, communication, persuasion, and comprehension skills.

Paige Kaszuba: Host and Recruitment Lead
Hanna Aboueid: Communications Lead (press-related)
Taija Figard: Communications Lead (social media)
Suzie Vo: Actions Lead
