Girls Circle

The Girls Circle program is a new program for middle school girls to explore topics such as celebrating individuality, diversity, getting along with others, and addresses goals, conflict styles, feeling good about ourselves, and taking time to relax. Activities include values exploration, “How Others See Me,” making dream catchers, potting a plant to symbolize personal growth, and finally culminates with a girls’ “compliment circle”. The focus of the program is fostering social and emotional learning (SEL) in the participants by creating opportunities to practice self-reflection, confidence building, and social awareness.

This program, hosted by the YMCA and funded by the North Shore Community Health Network was once a week for 8 weeks.
