Girls Circle
The Girls Circle is a structured support group for girls from 9-18 years.  It is designed to foster self-esteem, help girls maintain authentic connection with peers and adult women in their community, counter trends toward self-doubt, and allow for genuine self-expression through verbal sharing and creative activity.

Each Girls Circle will last 8-10 weeks.  Each week, a group of 6 to 10 girls of similar age and development meet with a facilitator for 1 1/2 hours.  During this time the girls take turns talking and listening to one another about their concerns and interests.  The girls can express themselves further through creative or focused activities such as role playing, drama, journaling, poetry, movement, drawing, collage, clay, computer, and so on.  Some themes introduced which relate to girls' lives are:

-Being a girl                                                 -Friendships
-Trusting ourselves                                     -Body Image
-Goals                                                         -Competition
