FLIC® and the YMCA® offer women and girls inspiration
on October 13th

Girls LeadWESTBOROUGH _ On Thursday evening, Oct. 13, the Female Leadership Interest Council (FLIC®) and the YMCA® of Central Massachusetts will be hosting another Girls Lead™ Program, featuring motivational speaker and author Michele Bredice Craemer as part of the ongoing Girls Lead™ Mother-Daughter Evening Series that was successfully launched early this year. This program takes place at the YMCA® of Central Mass, Boroughs Campus, from 6:30p.m.- 8 p.m.


The October program will feature inspirational goal setting for young women and will help girls learn how to maximize their potential. Craemer will discuss and demonstrate to girls and their moms (which can include anyone in a mother role) that anything is possible. This invigorating program is based on Craemer's motivational and inspirational children's book, "GIRLS SWEAT!-life lessons through running." Her presentation will draw on her personal experiences from years as a marathon runner and offers simple "life lessons."


This exciting and timely program touches on the mind body connection and works to help girls realize their full potential. Craemer uses her book as a tool for girls to relate to and understand her message.

"The book shows the two different sides of a girl, from being feminine to being gritty. It shows the power and strength that is within," Craemer said. "It seems that so many women get such power through fitness. You often see women in transition who turn to fitness."


"I've signed the book, 'Dream, Sweat, Achieve,'" Craemer continued. "It's fun to dream and visualize your goal through positive thinking and confidence; then you have to put your plan together and work on reaching your goal. The last part is feeling a sense of accomplishment on how great it is to achieve your goal."


Craemer said a similar program she did for a group of 80 eighth graders and their mothers in Connecticut at an all day conference not only helped to bolster the girls' confidence, it was also a hit with the moms.


"We did a bit of movement during that conference, and we'll do the same thing at the FLIC® and YMCA® Girls Lead program," she said, adding that the program is an interactive one.


The FLIC® and YMCA® Girls Lead Program is an enriching program for middle and high school girls, and interested college women in the Central Massachusetts communities.


"FLIC® and the YMCA® through our collaborative Girls Lead™ program are deeply committed to offering young women and their mothers many powerful opportunities to learn and grow together," said Deborah Penta, founder of FLIC®. "We are very grateful to Michele Craemer for sharing her energy and wisdom with young women in our community on October 13th. A recent gift from the United Way of Central Massachusetts through the law firm of Mirick O'Connell has helped our organization make it possible to provide this program to the community at no charge."


"Michele has received rave reviews from past audiences for her unique, "Sweat to Success" program, which focuses on inspiration and motivation. It is designed to get young women taking the steps necessary to set and achieve their personal goals. She ties the goal setting in nicely with visualization, life balance and relaxation components," said Elizabeth A. Moquin, director of Membership and Community Relations, YMCA® of Central Massachusetts (Boroughs Branch). "Michele is a very energetic, passionate individual and I know that her thoughts and ideas will resonate with this group. My daughter (who is now 14) grew up reading Michele's two children's books and this year she added her latest, 'GIRLS SWEAT!-life lessons through running,' to her collection. It sits on her nightstand as a source of constant inspiration."


FLIC® and the YMCA® have hosted after-school mentoring projects through Girls Lead™ in which they have helped show young women how female leaders pay it forward by helping the community, and by getting the girls involved in community outreach. Middle and high school girls from various local schools have an opportunity to meet a FLIC® board member or a mentor, hear about her journey, and then work one-on-one with that mentor in a group setting as well.


"Our program continues to evolve as we learn what the community needs," said Penta.


"I'm so honored to be asked to be the speaker," Craemer said. "Girls Lead™ is such a great program."


Admission to this event is free, but pre-registration is strongly encouraged. Call Debbie Desposito at (508) 616-9900 extension 110 to make a reservation.
