A lot of us are burnt out on having disagreements and difficult conversations in public, at work, and in our communities. Conflict feels uncomfortable, especially if it doesn’t lead to growth and understanding. Conflict as an opportunity for change might be a radical concept for some girls, but they need this key leadership skill right now.
Girls Leadership’s Girl & Grown-up Workshops teach girls how to speak up for themselves and others, equipping them with leadership skills that will serve them over a lifetime. Explore the power of voice together and learn practical communication skills you both can put into practice right away.
DISCOVER THE POWER OF THEIR VOICE.
Through games and role-play, girls might not even realize they are practicing the skills to speak-up, staying true to themselves, and creating change in their world. Now more than ever, girls need the skills to advocate for themselves and those around them.
THINK OF MISTAKES AS PART OF LEARNING.
During 4th and 5th grades, girls’ confidence plummets and perfectionism teaches them to hide mistakes, or only engage in activities that come easily to them. Our fun, interactive workshops are designed with mistakes in mind, so girls can experience bouncing back from a setback and taking that resilience with them into the next school year.
BUILD A FUN AND INCLUSIVE COMMUNITY.
Connecting with others is a skill that will serve girls over a lifetime at school, work, and in relationships. Our Girl & Grown-up Workshops include families from all over the country. In just four weeks, girls learn how to identify and ask for what they need, and practice having difficult conversations when conflicts arise. Our experienced educators create a space where girls are free to be their authentic selves and take healthy risks in a supportive environment.
