Core Programs

Girl Talk

A weekly support group that provides a safe haven for middle and high school girls to express themselves. This program teaches girls healthy coping skills, stress management, anger management, conflict resolution, boundaries, effective communication, reflective listening, anonymity, empathy, and peer support. It also teaches girls how to process their emotions and how to share them with others. In addition we discuss topics like mental health, bullying, suicide prevention, teen dating violence, self-image, and risky behaviors.

Selfie

I want girls to be confident in themselves, to know their worth and value, to trust themselves, to have pride, to behave with dignity and demand respect, to know it’s okay to love self,  to know that self should always be priority, to know that everything they need is inside of Self. This program will do this by boosting their self-esteem, self-confidence, self-respect, self-love, and creating a positive self-image.  Girls will also work on self-control and self-awareness. I believe all of these things are essential to self enhancement; girls reaching their highest self!

Whole

A health and wellness program that focuses on whole health; physical, spiritual, and mental.  This program teaches girls how to make healthy choices, practice self-care, lower their risk factors for various health conditions, and how to prevent them. Girls are taught the importance of practicing their faith, meditating, reducing screen time, enjoying nature, being physically active, and getting the appropriate amount of sleep and sun. They will explore healthier food options, and different types of exercise like Yoga, Zumba, and Soca. Girls will also learn how to meal prep and make healthy meals through cooking classes.

This program is about taking girls beyond their environment. I believe girls can learn so much by being exposed to other places, other cultures, and other foods.
