What is involved?

Our awesome Child Life Specialist Breanne leads the girls on an empowering 8 week adventure! Through discussion, crafts and group activities, we will be working on self-esteem, self-efficacy and emotional expression techniques, discussing the challenges of life at this age and stage, how to manage friendships as they shift and change.  Depending on the dynamic of the group (and the weather!) we may even head outdoors and take our discussion to the backyard or the nearby forest trails.

Our goals are to help girls learn:

  • Healthy emotional expression
  • Positive self-talk
  • Assertive communication
  • Boundary setting
  • Making (and being) good friends
