November Update:

Another awesome Chicktime in the books! Shout out to all our beautiful volunteers 👏

We had a great time hanging out with the girls of Elks Aidmore. Munching on fall snacks, playing games, making bracelets and memories. We had a time of gratitude and it was so touching to have everyone (and I mean everyone, even the caretakers 💕) share.

There’s just something about getting a bunch of girls together and hanging out. It’s powerful, it’s a blessing.

It’s CHICKTIME. Join us at our next Chicktime event on December 8. Visit http://www.chicktime.com/ for more info.

October Update:

What an amazing day!! Thank you, Amye, for taking time to share your crocheting skills with these girls!

I know we can’t take their pictures, but I wish you all could see their faces beaming with confidence at learning a new skill.

They were doing it so effortlessly!

It was nice for the girls to have their own bag of supplies, too!

Everything was perfect.

We played Heads Up and had a good laugh. Then they asked if we could come back every week. Those smiles and that joy makes every minute worth it.

September Update:

We had such a wonderful  time at our September workshop wth the girls at Elks Aidmore. Our leaders got to share stories that connected with the girls. We may not have the same exact story as the girls, but we have known hurts and have overcome them and are overcoming  them still. The girls totally connected with the stories. We were amazed at how silent the room was as we shared our experiences. It was amazing to share with them.

We played fun trivia games and spent some time coloring.

We had snacks, we laughed, cried, and had a really great time. We love being involved with Chicktime more and more. We would love for you to join us.

August Update:

What an amazing day!!! Thank you to everyone who made it possible!

We had so many volunteers and the girls got a ton of new back to school clothes. Garbage bags full.

They got new shoes, new jewelry, and they were able to get new make up as well.

They even had a make up tutorial.

With all the make up accessories they needed to try things out!

We had girls their own age speaking wisdom into their life.

It was an incredible day!

In addition to our Ice Cream Social we will be having a fashion show and a back to school shopping event in which the girls at Elks Aidmore can choose clothing that has been donated…(thank you)!!

It’s going to be a great one so don’t miss out!

July Update:

What an amazing day!

We played cards….

Made friendship bracelets and angle bracelets….and just hung out.

The girls really enjoyed having us there and were opening up to us. It was great spending time getting to know them better….and they asked our two favorite questions~

1- “Can you stay longer?”

2- When are you coming back?’

We are so thankful we get to spend time encouraging them!

June Update:

T-shirt designing and rock painting was a success!

Thank you to all the volunteers who showed up and helped this month! Can’t wait until next month!

May Update:

What an incredibly fun day! Thank you, Selina for teaching the girls sign language and talking about your ministry, Deaf Heartbeat.

I am so inspired by your story every time you share it.

Thank you for playing games with us that were fun and reinforced the importance of being able to communicate.

Today was fantastic!!

Joyfully,

Heather

Chicktime Conyers

April Update:

What a great time we had painting with the girls at our April Workshop!

Each painting uniquely made from the heart….

It’s amazing to hear the girls talk about the connections they have made since we started our Chicktime Chapter and volunteering once a month at Elks!

They aren’t the only ones who feel connected ….

These workshops are life changing for the girls and well as the volunteers.

Join us as we continue our mission of intentional  love and encouragement.

March Update:

Today was incredible! We were so glad to spend time with our friends from Chicktime National as well as some amazing ladies starting a new chapter in South Carolina.

Here are just some of the beautiful Blackout Poetry/creative writing pieces that were created during our workshop~ 

Don’t the pieces  just take your breath away?

We had a great time with our girls  and we even got to celebrate a birthday!

Please join us next month and the month after that and so on! Let’s show the girls that they matter!

January Update:

We had a great Valentine’s Party with some amazing girls!

Today, we practiced the art of loving yourself. Each girl made a valentine card written to herself. It was such a great activity. Before they began, though, Chari read a poem by Charlie Chaplin called, “As I Began to Love Myself”. It is incredible. This is the poem. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=62oby83NtGw

These are just a few of the beautiful cards the girls made. We are so encouraged to see the number of volunteers is increasing as well as the number of girls participating. “Wrists are for bracelets, not cutting” is a quote from the last picture and certainly the reason we know we are called to help these young women reach their full potential!

We hope to see you next month!

January Update:

We had such a great time making vision boards with the girls.

We hope the girls will reflect on their boards daily and stayed focused on their dreams!

We can’t wait to spend time with them next month! Join us~

December Update:

What a blessing it was to bring Chicktime to Elks at this time of the year! Our FIRST Christmas party with the girls who live at Elks was amazing! We shared candy canes, pizza, desserts and laughs!The girls enjoyed the games and all the goodies, but we could especially tell they were just happy we were there!

 Our Holiday Stocking Drive was also huge success!!! We delivered 35 holiday stockings full of personal hygiene items and candy for the young ladies of Elks Aidmore!! Special thanks to Trista and staff at Discover Point Church for making this possible!!

We have an exciting year planned in 2018~

Please join us!

We are super stoked that Conyers Chicktime has partnered with an amazing nonprofit Elks Aidmore!!! It was a joy meeting the staff today and the campus is beautiful! 

We are excited to host our very first Chicktime event on Nov. 4th! If you are in the Conyers/Atlanta metro and are interested in sharing and growing with at risk girls…join us! 

We will also be hosting a new volunteer orientation @ Elk’s before our first workshop to give all those who are interested an opportunity to come and learn more about Chicktime @ Elk’s and complete your required background checks!
