What is involved?

On this 8-week empowering adventure, our facilitators will be guiding the girls through specific topics that include:

  • Building confidence
  • Exploring personal values and morals
  • Improving positive self-image and self-talk
  • Setting healthy boundaries and establishing assertiveness
  • Improving interpersonal skills to include friend making and keeping, and effective communication
  • Dealing with bullying and conflict

Topics will be addressed through meaningful discussions, fun group activities, and self-reflection. Each week we will focus on a specific topic, exploring what it is, how it affects/impacts us, and coping skills and strategies. At the end of each session, we will self-reflect on the main takeaways of the week by creating and adding to our own individual GirlzOwn Guide to Thrive.
