The program objectives of Girls Circle is to foster strengths and promote resiliency through developing an authentic connection with their peers and adult women in the community, build skills, counter trends toward self-doubt, and allow for genuine self-expression through verbal sharing and creative activity, all while sparking their highest potential.

There are eight sessions that will take place, once per week, with a group of six to ten girls who identify with female development. Girls will be grouped with other girls of similar age and development (middle school girls), and meet with a facilitator for one hour per week. The Circle consists of simple rituals and a six-step format to provide predictability, safety, and facilitate healthy communication.
