Girls in Real Life Situations:ages K-5th grade.  This group is a curriculum based self esteem and life skills group for girls.  Research has shown that educating children on emotional health and teaching them social and emotional regulation skills early on, they become healthier adults with solid critical thinking skills and problem solving skills helping them to reach their fullest potential.. This group teaches girls the skills needed to handle social pressures, bullying, cyber bullying and relationship responsibility.  In addition, girls learn more about themselves, how to love and nurture themselves and to start thinking about the future and what kind of teenager/adult they want to become.  Lasting friendships are built here between the group and the rise in confidence and leadership abilities are measurable.  There is a focus on responsibility of self, others and community.
