Last night we had so much with the girls making wall art.
They used stencils, paints and markers to make canvases to hang in their rooms.
They had so much fun showing each other what they thought would work well
and complimenting one another’s work!! 💖💖💖
We are so lucky to be surrounded by these beautiful, talented young ladies.
Last night we made inspirational books with the girls.
Our workshop leader Terri brought so many beautiful quotes and stickers
and some of the girls wrote themselves notes!
It was so precious to see them all working together and bouncing ideas off of another!
They even got silly and put stickers on their faces.
We are so lucky to know and invest love into some truly beautiful young women.
Our amazing friend and Health Coach,Leslie Hall, came to teach the girls at Jenkins
Institute about Healthy Eating. We prepared a delicious vegetable soup using all
We made a no-bake peanut butter chocolate cookie which was delicious!
Leslie helped us educate the girls on how to read labels
and gave “Eat this,not that” options for snacks, school breakfast, and lunches.
Many girls tried vegetables they said they didn’t like, and were surprised at how
delicious they tasted in our soup. One girl, in particular, was amazed what a little lemon
juice can do to vegetables and for your digestive track!🤣😂
Thank you Leslie for coming to give our girls the tools they need to navigate healthy
eating!!! We also showed the girls why sugar can be so dangerous when consumed
without limits. Many kids are not educated on healthy eating habits and
Chicktime Charleston is so grateful for Leslie teaching us ALL some better choices we can make!!
Tonight’s event was very personal and we made vision/goal journals. Each page was for the girls to set a goal, whether it was overcoming something stressful next week or a place they’d like to live or travel to in 20 years.I was again humbled and speechless when one girl shared with me that it was hard to imagine a future when this month is filled with court dates, the stress of facing family members who were in charge of her care, who hurt her instead. Questions of who will she live with, where will that be, can she stay in her current school…. I spoke with her one on one almost the entire event and we made goals that were for tomorrow, next week, next month. I believe writing out your goals, hopes, prayers so you can read them and reflect is so powerful. And everyone please pray for this one girl I’m speaking of on Monday, 1/28. God knows who and what for, but she needs all the support she can get.
What a great night!
We painted Special Memories Boxes and made Acorns out of donut holes, chocolate frosting and sprinkles! Our friend Kelly even showed off her new found talent of face painting!!!
Thanks to all who came and to our sister chapters Chicktime Moncks Corner and Chicktime Charleston PC for the support!! Love you all!!!
September’s Chicktime Charleston event was pretty groovy! We helped the girls tye dye socks and mini tote bags! It was so fun watching them come up with different color combinations and designs!
We fed them dinner first and got to dyeing! One of them even grabbed a pair of shorts she had to dye because she didn’t want the fun to end!
See you next month!
Where do we start? Our March workshop was AMAZING!!
Game night was maybe our best EVER!! Started with a blind fold obstacle course…. then a rather disgusting ~ find the gummy bear in the mountain of whip cream relay….balloon games… musical seats (but with questions)… and open a triple wrapped present ( secured with duct tape) with oven mitts…..and lots and lots or sugar!! So many laughs!
So many moments of comfort and happiness being shared at Chicktime! It’s hard to wait a month for the next workshop!
Our time together was nothing short of AMAZING!!

On Tuesday, July 11th, Chicktime supporters, Macy and her mom Susan Tucker Hall, came to The Jenkins Institute for some live therapy for our beautiful girls.
What a relaxing time spent with the therapy dogs. Healing is a process and how amazing it is that dogs can be part of that process.
Hope to see everyone at Chicktime July!

Tonight was such a Joy!!! Lisa Came to do a makeup tutorial and showed us lots of tricks. The girls were so attentive!! They all got makeup bags, a palate of eye and lip and contour colors and a hand mirror. Love them all so much!!!
We had our girls come and participate. We love to encourage kids to love others and show them how much they have in common!
One of the young ladies in these pictures just came to the Jenkins Institute this week. She felt so overwhelmed and one of the House Moms said she was keeping to herself. She completely came out of her shell at our event.She laughed and giggled the whole
Night!!!! She did a bunch of the volunteers makeup. This is why we love what we do during Chicktime…the smiles and laughter!
As a Mother’s Day gift Jodi Gregory’s son Joe volunteered to play his violin and wanted to give all tips-donations that are collected to a charity of her choosing. She chose Chicktime Charleston. The money will help us fund the amazing events we plan for the girls at the Jenkins Institute in North Charleston. What an amazing kid ❤️
He raised almost $100!!! Thank you Joe and thank you Jodi!!!
Join us for Salon Day and the launch of Chicktime Charleston!!
January and February were a whirlwind couple of months for Chicktime Charleston! Our chapter leader, Megan Swatt started and and completed her training to lead our chapter. She toured the Jenkins Institute during her training and instantly fell in love with the staff that she met that day! Our community has already shown us so much love and support by helping us to fill up the majority of our 2017 schedule with workshop leaders and activities. We have a very exciting year ahead of us! We are so excited about the future of Chicktime Charleston and we hope that YOU will be part of our journey. In addition to volunteers and workshop leaders, we are praying for co-leaders to help Megan run our chapter. If you feel called to serve the hurting children of our community, please contact Megan today!
