Virtual Girls Group - Grades 6-8

A safe group to be yourself, learn about others and gain skills to build a social emotional toolkit for your teen years

We will be running a virtual girls group:

  • Thursdays - April 1, 8, 15, 22
  • 7 pm - 8 pm
  • Grades 6-8
  • We would like to run the group based on what the needs of the girls who sign up are. Topics could include self-esteem, body image, friendships, etc. We will ask for your input when you register
  • Group cost is $50. Once you have registered, a welcome pack will be sent to the registrant with any materials we will need for the group and a few surprises!

Please note that our groups are all-inclusive and whatever we talk about will confidentially stay within the group - unless there is any talk of self-harm or harm to others.

In combination of celebrating our 5 year anniversary and

Women's History Month we are teaming up with
