Girl‘s Circle Program

This is a new program that was piloted within the school setting for targeted girls for one year. It will be running for all girls in the age group as an afterschool program for the 2007-08 school year starting October ’07. The Girls Circle is a model of structures support groups for girls 9-18, we focus on the 12-15 age groups. It is designed to foster self-esteem, help girls maintain authentic connection with peers and adult women in their community, counter trends of self doubt, and allow for genuine self-expression through verbal sharing and creative activity. The program will run after school in each of the elementary schools, each module is 12 weeks. There are nine modules to work with which can be mixed and matched for the target groups. Group size is no larger than 15 girls. Each meeting is for two hours every week, during this time the girls take turns talking and listening to one another about their concerns and interests. They also express their selves through movement, drawing, collage, clay, and computer and so on. Often the themes are introduced which relate to the girls lives – such as being a girl, trusting ourselves, friendships, body image, goals, competition and decision making.

The Girls Circle program has been applied to programs in such areas as juvenile probation, schools, peer leadership, health education, positive youth development, pregnancy prevention, gang prevention and substance abuse prevention. The focus of these general groups will be in three areas as follows;

Being a Girl
Body Image

Relationships with Peers
Who am I
Paths to the Future

Honouring our Diversity
Mind, Body, Spirit
Expressing Individuality
