Growing up Female:
Connect with your daughter, celebrate the strengths of being female, and give your daughter the knowledge and skills she needs to become a well balanced and confident young woman.
Listen to what happens when mothers and daughters gather together.
Yes, a woman other than a mother can accompany the girl! We want to serve all girls so any adult woman may bring a girl she cares about.
Growing Up Female Level 1 (for 4th, 5th, and 6th grade girls)*
Teach your daughter about body changes and the realities of being female in an uplifting environment with other girls and women. This workshop explores the normal changes that occur in girls as they grow into women, teaches girls how to deal with periods, breasts, and changing emotions, and it connects girls and adult women together in a powerful and positive way. The session is crafted to build self-esteem, positive body image, and a healthy sense of "being a girl." A warm and comfortable environment for questions, exploration, and learning, this experience sets the stage for future conversations and positive growth as your daughter transitions to adulthood.
Growing up Female Level 2 (for the middle school years)* Note: this event fills the requirements for the Girl Scout Science of Happiness Badge
This workshop offers girls and mothers a safe haven in the midst of the complexities and struggles of the middle-school years. The session explores and promotes positive relationships (with friends, parents, and boys) and healthy and realistic body-image for the teen years (and beyond). Finally, the workshop helps girls understand the powerful and complex arena of emotion and emotional intelligence. And it all happens in an uplifting and safe-feeling environment.
Women's Health and Wellness (for high school girls - or for adult-only audiences) Note: this event fills the requirement for the Girl Scout Women's Health badge
This workshop addresses beauty and bodies. We reinforce healthy attitudes, discuss perfectionism, body-image, and the unrealistic portrayals of women in the media. There will be no sugar-coating of information in this workshop. Mothers and girls will listen to presentations, give feedback, engage in activities together, and explore stories of real girls, real women, and real issues.
