After School Program
Join an after school program where you can meet other girls, have fun, get creative, and learn social-emotional tools.
Our virtual After School Program is for girls in grades 5&6 and 7&8 who want to learn how to use their voice for themselves, others, and their communities. Participants meet twice a week and the sessions are taught by experienced Girls Leadership educators. Girls will learn essential social and emotional skills like how to listen to and respect their internal voice, explore and celebrate their identities, build healthy friendships at home and online, and begin the steps to become leaders in their communities for change.
DATES & TIMES
Our community will meet on Zoom for 90 minutes from 3:30pm to 5:00pm. One cohort will meet on Pacific Time and the other will meet on Eastern Time. Please select the time zone that works best for you.
Tuesday & Thursdays

Session 2: Nov. 2 to Dec. 18 *skipping the week of Nov. 23rd (Six weeks)
During the workshop we teach girls core social-emotional skills to support their personal development with their relationships to themselves, friendships, and communities.
The last 30 mins of session will be dedicated to an advisory session, MOVE YOUR MIND – a girl favorite during virtual learning – that includes games, creative writing prompts, and community building and creative space to contribute to the Girls Leadership Yearbook.
