Fourth and fifth grade are often the years in which girls experience significant shifts in their self-confidence and increasing social pressures to conform. It is this transitional age where girls’ voices tend to become silenced.

The workshop gives pairs the opportunity to have fun, to bond, and to work together to explore the importance of healthy and productive conflict.

To be a strong leader in our everyday lives, we need to learn the skills to be true to ourselves and others we care about. In this playful and interactive workshop, girls and grown-ups will discover their authentic selves through games, discussions and role-play.

They will leave with concrete tools and shared vocabulary for how to be their own Truest Friend, compromise with and cheer on others, take care of their emotions when things get tough, and step into their brave selves. This is a Part II to our 2/3 series, however it is not a requirement to have taken Part I first.

Program Summary:
Week One: True Friendship Inside & Out
Week Two: Self-care and Managing Emotions
Week Three: Conflict and Compromise: Let’s Make A Deal!
Week Four: Building Our Brave Muscles

Price: $230 per girl & grown-up pair
