LiveGirlTalk provides a BRAVE SPACE for girls. Groups are designed to empower and foster self-confidence and allow for genuine self-expression through sharing and creative activity. The small group meets weekly with a trained facilitator to share concerns and interests, thus providing an opportunity to connect with other girls and talk in a safe environment without judgment.
10 Weeks 9/25 - 12/4
LiveGirlTalk is free-of-charge and open to grades 6-8. Girls will receive a LiveGirlTalk journal. The 10-week series begins the week of September 25 and concludes the week of December 4. Groups will not meet on public school holidays.
