SGS Surviving and Thriving in Girl World

Published on

Gone are days when girls are made of "sugar and spice and everything nice"... or are they? We are barraged with messages about gender everywhere - our homes, schools, the media, and more. What hidden lessons are we learning? How do these lessons affect everything - girls' confidence, sense of worth, assertiveness, healthy friendships, and avoiding the "Mean Girl" phenomenon? In this workshop for 3rd through 5th grade girls and their parents and guardians, we will explore girl world, the challenges girls face, and ways that we can all work toward positive self esteem, healthy identity development, and empowerment in action for all girls!
