Once per week for six consecutive weeks. Each week one of the six units focuses on a different theme essential to girls' healthy development. This program can be adapted for various age groups beginning at fourth and fifth grades.
"A girl is bullied every seven minutes. Some of the top years for bullying include fourth through eighth grade in which 90% were reported as victims of some kind of bullying."
Young girls are increasingly experiencing bullying, low self-esteem, communication challenges, and a misunderstanding of their bodies and their rights. In an effort to proactively address issues specific to girls and women we have developed an interdisciplinary approach to connect girls with their empowered selves. This workshop is designed to establish a safe space for girls to develop a strong sense of self and leadership characteristics, in turn, reducing the incidents of bullying.
- In-Power Girls can appreciate their own beauty and talents (self esteem) and develop an awareness of their capacity to create their own path to leadership
- In-Power Girls can identify caring people in their lives to generate a web of support.
- In-Power Girls can use effective communication skills, identify and practice conflict resolution and understand the dynamics of bullying.
- In-Power Girls cultivate the strength to take responsibility for their own decisions (owning mistakes) and learn to make healthy choices.
