Girls Circle

Girls Circle Logo

The Girls Circle model is a research-based, best practice model developed by the Girls Circle Association (www.girlscircle.com) It is a weekly structured support group for girls from 9-18 years to encourage the development of strength, courage, confidence, honesty, and communication skills for girls. The goal is to enhance girls' abilities so they are able to take full advantage of their talents, academic interests, career pursuits, and potential for healthy relationships.

Girls Circle aims to counteract social and interpersonal forces that impede girls’ growth and development by promoting an emotionally safe setting and structure within which girls can develop caring relationships and use authentic voices.

When girls voice their ideas and opinions in a safe environment, it strengthens their confidence and self-esteem and encourages them to express themselves more fully and critically think through their behavior and choices. By exam-ining cultural expectations in a safe and supportive setting, girls gain greater awareness of their options and strengthen their ability to make choices that are consistent with their values, interests, and talents.

Girls Circles will be offered weekly starting in 2012.
