I attended a one day mother daughter Girls in Politics day. I was with a group of 5 and our group collectively paid just over $1100 for a full day- and we all left pretty disappointed and feeling pretty duped. 1. The founder is quite impressive and works in campaign management & the stories about insider work are pretty awesome . 2. The founder does not appear to be an educator- all written material and oral delivery is not done with thought to what works best when educating a group of diverse aged and skilled girls (the day camp was marketed to girls ages 8-15) . 3. The session was incredibly disorganized, with cheap snacks and food for a full day of study and work . 4.Our session went from 8-5 and from 8-2 the girls were lectured about our nation's political system. No visuals were used other than the dense handout written at a high school level. Actual work on campaigning was rushed through from 2-5 . 5. Very little time for girls to work on their campaign and for all to share their message with the group. 6. We left with girls who were utterly uninspired to run for office- quite the opposite intention that the mothers had going into it. 6. Our girls were aged 9-13, so young on the spectrum- but within the age that the event was targeted towards . 7. the marketing materials on the website look great but the event felt opposite of everything I saw on the site. 8. There is nowhere to review the company- not on yelp, fb, on the website. They are only listed on eventbrite. I'd be curious to know who comes back as a repeat customer. 9. I really wanted to love the event and i love the idea and the founder seams like a smart interesting woman- but this seems like a side hustle, with lean back up support, and not lots of thought into delivering a long term meaningful product to girls.
