Up Girls Court Website » Completion of Program – A Celebration for Cohort 9 (July 6, 2012) Slideshow

Girls Court ninth cohort of girls celebrated a year of participating in the program at Ali'iolani Hale, the Hawaii Supreme Court courtroom. On this special day, parents, our staff and invited guests who partnered with Girls Court came together to acknowledge and celebrate the girls' growth despite the challenges they face. Chief Justice Mark Recktenwald addressed the girls with encouragement and congratulations. Each girl received a potted lemon tree denoting "when life gives you lemons..." and to symbolize that from their roots of nurturing, family group, counseling, and Hawaiian culture, grows trust, respect, identity, purpose and competence.
