During the teenage years, several changes take place in our bodies as well as our minds. In this phase, many are vulnerable to feeling depressed, anxious, overwhelmed, or simply struggling with this transition period that all young women face.
You are not alone. This peer-to-peer support group series is aimed at discussing these challenging thoughts, providing tools to build confidence, and is a place where teen girls can connect, share and encourage each other. Social support is critical in developing skills that allow teenagers to prosper into healthy adults.
Being a teen girl can be challenging - learning skills to navigate those teen years can help!
Teen Girl Empowerment Series
This series will be held via the Zoom platform. This format will be HIPAA compliant and the privacy of the participants will be protected.
This support group series will run for six sessions over the course of 3 months. Two sessions will take place every other week during each month.
Each support group session will be 90 minutes, starting with introductions, an educational component, and then leading into one hour of “Talk Time.”
Each group will be led by a Group Leader who is experienced in facilitating peer support groups and understands the focus of the group.
We will run two groups, one group would be for 13 to 15-year-olds, and then another group would be for 16 to 18-year-olds.
The goal of this series is to inspire and empower young women and girls in the community to feel comfortable in their own minds and skin through guidance, mentorship, and shared compassion.
