Girls Circle is a strength-based support group that addresses the unique needs of girls ages 9-18 from Camden County, NJ. The goal is to encourage the development of strength, courage, confidence, honesty, and communication skills. Each cycle of groups can accommodate up to 12 girls. A complete cycle runs for 8-12 weeks depending on the curriculum being used.
The program is designed to foster self-awareness and self-confidence, and help girls maintain authentic connection with peers and adult women. The Girls Circle program meets for 1-1.5 hours once a week during after-school or lunch hours at each high school and/or various locations throughout Camden County.
All girls are welcomed to participate. Special emphasis is placed on the recruitment of girls identified as at-risk by referring schools, courts, DCP&P or community organizations.
