What We Do

Girl Talk Foundation, Inc. develops teenaged girls socially, emotionally and physically to become civically-engaged community citizens. We offer one empowerment program for girls ages 11-16 to increase their self-awareness, improve their academic success and reduce unhealthy/risky behaviors. “Tailoring Teens for Success” is a curriculum offered in-person for girls that 1) provides a brave space for students to discuss adolescent issues (i.e. bullying, body image, etc.) and learn positive information; 2) develops girls' emotional intelligence, allowing them to function in the classroom and the working world. Girls learn in interactive sessions that are designed to enhance their skills in communication, relationships, problem-solving, critical thinking, and technology.

Interesting Info
