LiveGirlTalk provides girls with a positive adult role model and creates a safe space for girls to develop self-esteem and social emotional intelligence.
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 building blocks of a confident leader.
Our curriculum outline follows:
• (Weeks 1-3) LIVE your true self: Affirmations & loving yourself; Perspective & communication
• (Weeks 4-5) LIVE brave: Building positive relationships & healthy conflict resolution; Embodying resilience & perseverance to overcome obstacles; self-advocacy
• (Weeks 7-9) LIVE kind: Connecting positively with yourself and other; having a positive impact on the world around you
• (Week 10) LIVE your power: Becoming a leader; activating to change the world
The weekly routine includes an icebreaker, topic introduction, 1-2 activities to support the topic, and journaling. Every girl receives a LiveGirl journal in which she captures her reflections and corresponds with her mentor.
93.4% of parents agree or strongly agree that LiveGirl has had a positive impact on their daughter’s self-esteem.
