Girls Day Out 2024 is presented by EDF Renewables (Homer Solar Energy Center)

Girls Day Out, hosted by Tompkins Cortland Community College, is for girls ages 10-14. This unique day of activities will be held on March 9, 2024, one day after International Women’s Day. This year, the theme of International Women’s Day is to #InspireInclusion, and we plan to do just that. We will engage and empower ALL girls in our community by equipping them with the tools to go out into the world as we see them: equal, powerful, and unstoppable.

The day’s events will include the following:

  • An interactive career fair with accomplished women from the Cortland community and surrounding areas.
  • A ukulele lesson to learn the basics and a few beginner songs.
  • A collaborative and empowering art project with a local artist.
  • An engaging science project exploring our local environment.
  • An end-of-day pool party!

Lunch and a snack will be provided, along with a 2024 Girls Day Out bag.

When: March 9, 2024, from 10:00 am – 3:00 pm (Snow date: April 6, 2024)

  • Check-in: 9:30 am – 10:00 am
  • Pick-up: between 2:05 pm and 3:00 pm during the end-of-day pool party.

Where: Tompkins Cortland Community College (Park in Lot #4)
