Port City Super Girls Registration now open
Registration for the third annual Port City Super Girls academy is now open.
The Wilmington Police Department created Port City Super Girls in 2016 as a community outreach and gang prevention program. Young women are often used by gang leaders in a variety of capacities including storing drugs, renting cars, carrying information to and from jails, and other, sometimes illegal, activities.
Super Girls empowers young women to make positive choices, culminating with a free four day retreat at Camp Kirkwood April 15-18.
Limited to 50 participants, the on-site academy challenges teens 12-28 years old to explore innovative career paths, receive instruction on financial literacy and violence prevention and intervention. An interactive curriculum led by female WPD officers will be offered along with extra-curricular activities to include, sports, health and fitness.
The deadline to apply is Nov. 30. Apply online here.
