WRC’s Girls Leadership Program improves self-esteem and leadership skills in adolescent girls, with a focus on community impact. This twelve-session program is offered during the school year to girls in middle schools in southeastern Pennsylvania.
Participants are nominated by guidance counselors and teacher teams at their schools and attend weekly sessions facilitated by a graduate level human service professional skilled in working with youth.
Girls’ Leadership offers training in Communication, Decision-making, Conflict Resolution, and Problem Solving skills, and each site develops and implements a Leadership Project to address a need in the community.
The program includes a guest speaker or field trip, and a Girls’ Leadership Forum. For more details, please view the video below. This program is funded by a combination of corporate and foundation grants along with the support of individual donors.
