PUT DEM BOOTY SHORTS UP & PULL DEM JUMP ROPES OUT: JOIN THE DOUBLE DUTCH TO DREAMS MOVEMENT, THAT BUILD YOUNG GIRLS SELF-ESTEEM & HEALTHY LIFE SKILLS TO STOP THEM FROM TWERKIN… {Photos}




We don't know about y'all... But we are oh so loving this movement!

The Double Dutch to dream movement is a fun active movement that is making it's way to teach young girls to build self esteem and a healthy active life. It also cease to stop young girls from twerkin, and instead teaches them to get back to the good old fashion games and fun... Yazz, this is what's up for our youth... Find out more about the movement inside.

Okay here's more detail on the movement, milwaukeenns.org:


" Ebony Haynes, founder and CEO of Double Dutch to Dreams, offers the program to schools and organizations that work with girls. She recently signed a contract with the Milwaukee Academy, a residential behavioral and mental health facility for girls, to provide a nine-week Double Dutch to Dreams program. The program teaches building self-esteem, healthy activity and life skills to 22 girls ages 13 to 18. Haynes has always been involved in her community. She said the double-dutch program just landed in her lap.                                                                                                                                             “I was outside jumping double-dutch and made a 15-second Instagram video of me jumping,” Haynes said. Her goal was to encourage young people to go outside and jump double-dutch instead of twerking. The video of Haynes jumping double-dutch went “Facebook viral,” she said. It has been shared more than 80,000 times.

Since Haynes posted the video, others have posted their own double-dutch videos along with questions such as, “What happened to double-dutch?” “What happened to playing outside?” and “What happened to kids being kids?”

Haynes said she did not expect the reaction, but found a way to capitalize on it. Last November, Haynes was invited to bring Double Dutch to Dreams to Capitol West Academy for its second annual all-girls lock-in."      She added, “We’re trying to get them to not always be on their phones or on the computers, but to actually go outside and play and exercise and enjoy one another.” Double Dutch to Dreams fills a gap, Reese-Kelly noted, by providing positive opportunities for young African-American women to “learn about themselves to know their worth."
