A good place to let out stress...
“I have been getting better grades in my classes since Girls Circle. In fact, I think all my grades have gone up. It’s a good place to let out stress so it doesn’t build up!”
- Girls Circle Participant
Girls Circle is a structured support group for girls that is designed to foster self-esteem, develop and maintain authentic connection with peers and adult women in their community, counter trends of self-doubt and provide an outlet for self-expression. The desire is to see positive peer pressure take hold and for girls to become advocates for each other. As a strengths-based model, Girls Circle helps participants build personal and collective strengths and competence while providing a safe environment to develop critical thinking and exhibit the ability to make choices that are consistent with one's values, interests and talents.
