What’s been happening at GRCB BEATS so far?
GRCB After School was piloted at East Somerville Community School with girls in grades 6-8. In the first few weeks we have been focused on connecting our girls to the GRCB mission, playing games to get to know each other, and creating a safe creative and collaborative space.
