We offer monthly support group mentoring designed to support the under-served needs of girls (8-12 years old), teens (13-15 years old) and young women (16-24 years old) with a parent or family member that has been in conflict with the law. Specifically, our program is aimed to build self-esteem, provide peer support, receive help with homework, set goals, and foster the development of positive female leaders in our community.

Our One-on-One Girls Empowerment Support connects girls to women with similar experiences who work together with the girls to provide tailored support and work together in achieving the goals set by our girls.

Our girls retreat offers:

  • A safe and encouraging environment to receive support, learn and grow. During our Girls’ Chat, girls share thoughts, feelings and experiences, help empower each other and learn healthy coping strategies.

  • The opportunity to connect with other girls and mentors who have similar life experiences and have fun together in sports, arts, and cooking!

  • The opportunity to participate in self-esteem activities that help to boost confidence and pride of being a girl.

Our program has shown to help our girls by:

  • Increasing self-esteem and confidence

  • Reducing feelings of loneliness, shame and social isolation

  • Improving school grades and attendance

  • Increasing the use of healthy coping strategies

  • Reducing antisocial attitudes and behaviours
