Some young ladies made history today. The girls with “Junior Girls Day Out” Community Project are the first organization to paint a mural on a City of Charleston as part of the “Keep Charleston Beautiful” Project!

The girls had the opportunity to help finish the mural, which was designed by College of Charleston student Josh McFadden. Terea Druisin, owner of Luna Design, assisted the girls in painting a nature-theme design on the Charleston Recreation Building located in front of Mitchell Elementary School.

“Junior Girls Day Out” Community Project conducts personal, education and career development programs for elementary schools girls ages 7-12. The organization’s goal is to provide positive outlets to inspire and encourage young girls to fulfill great achievements in their lives, and be deterred from pursuing paths of drugs, violence, and other detrimental vices.

All of the activities, meals, and transportation are absolutely free for all participating girls.

“Junior Girls Day Out” Community Project is recognized and legally registered with the State of South Carolina as a non-profit organization.
