LiveGirlTalk is a 10-week facilitated discussion group that creates a BRAVE SPACE for girls. The small group meets weekly with a professional mentor to share concerns and interests. The curriculum-based program builds social emotional intelligence and self-esteem.
The overall goal of LiveGirlTalk is to build social emotional intelligence and self-esteem. In other words, the goal is to help girls truly love and believe in themselves and equip them with the leadership skills necessary to have a positive impact on the world. This will be accomplished by providing a high dosage of positivity and inspiration over ten weeks, while facilitating the participants’ self-discovery of their inner LiveGirl, so that upon completion of the program they are prepared to LIVE our leadership values.
