About the Program
Circles for Girls is an 8-10 week structured educational group for girls and young women. It brings together a group of 4-10 girls with trained facilitators to explore topics relating to social, emotional, and physical well-being. Groups are conducted within area middle and high schools during the school day.
The program is designed focus on the development of effective conflict management and communication skills and to help girls realize their strengths, withstand social pressures, and maintain healthy relationships.
As a volunteer you will work with an experienced co-facilitator to lead youth in these educational exploratory groups. The CDR will work with you to place you in a circle that fits your availability (note: all circles take place during the regular school day). Groups meet once a week for 8 weeks.
