LiveGirlTalk

LiveGirlTalk is a facilitated discussion group for middle school girls 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. Discussion topics include:  being a girl, self-confidence & body image, relationship to self/family/friends, celebrating differences, bullying, conflict resolution, communications, goal setting, and career exploration.

“LiveGirlTalk gives me a safe space to open up and discuss issues that are causing me stress. I enjoy the creative activities and sharing with other girls like me.”
— Brynne (New Canaan)
