WHO WOULD BENEFIT FROM EMPOWERING ADOLESCENCE FOR GIRLS?

The Empowering Adolescence for Girls Group is ideally designed for preteen girls who are seeking to enhance their self-confidence, develop emotional intelligence, and learn effective strategies for handling both emotional and social challenges. This group is a perfect fit for those who want to embrace positivity, boost their resilience, and proactively pursue their goals with determination, courage, and creativity.

We support preteens with the following:

  • Difficulty expressing emotions and comparing oneself.

  • Low self-esteem due to external pressures and doubts.

Academic and Performance Challenges

  • Academic pressure, performance anxiety, and self-doubt.

  • Balancing school demands with personal life.

Social Dynamics and Relationships

  • Navigating conflicts, bullying, and peer pressure.

  • Struggles in making and maintaining friendships.

Transitions and Adaptations

  • Adjusting to family changes and transitioning to new stages.

  • Coping with shifts in friendships and social settings.

Effective Communication and Conflict Resolution

  • Handling conflicts, misunderstandings, and online interactions.

  • Developing strong communication skills.

Identity Formation and Resilience

  • Building a positive self-image and discovering personal strengths.

  • Cultivating resilience to overcome challenges and pursue aspirations.

WHAT TO EXPECT

The Empowering Adolescence for Girls Group provides a comprehensive experience, enabling preteen girls to grasp and manage emotions effectively, build resilience, navigate social and academic landscapes, and discover their identity. Simultaneously, parents and caregivers gain strategies to bolster their preteen's emotional coping mechanisms and foster a supportive environment.

We meet individually with each participant prior to the start of the group to determine if they are the right fit and to identify specific areas of concern. In addition to group-focused activities, we are able to provide individualized interventions tailored to the specific needs of each preteen.

CANCELLATION POLICY

If a preteen cannot attend and we are notified at least 7 days prior to the start date of the program we will issue a refund, excluding a $50 non-refundable deposit for administrative fees. At the time of registration full payment is required to reserve a space. If less than 7 days notification is given, no refund will be provided.
