Respect, self-esteem and the importance of education will go hand-in-hand Oct. 16 when 100 girls spend the day at Johnson C. Smith University.

Through a $10,000 grant to the Girl Talk Foundation from the Wachovia Wells Fargo Foundation, middle and high school students will tour the JCSU campus and attend an informational session with author and actor Hill Harper.

"We are all about impacting the lives of young girls and exposing them to opportunities that allow them to make good choices," Girl Talk Foundation executive director Janine Davis said. "We are pleased that Wachovia Wells Fargo sees the need and are willing to invest in them."

Girl Talk Foundation is a non-profit organization which aims to encourage positive and critical thinking, build character, promote self-respect and teach life and leadership skills for girls ages 11-16.

The grant will support Girl Talk's fall college tour, which introduces girls to higher education, self-sufficiency and promotes career focus.

Each attendee will receive a T-shirt, journal, backpack and an autographed copy of Harper's book, "Letters From a Young Sister."

Since 2007, Girl Talk has toured colleges including Duke University, North Carolina Central University, Winston-Salem State University, UNC-Charlotte and Davidson College.

The tour has already met its capacity of 80 girls.
