GirlPower / GoodGuys

GirlPower & GoodGuys lays the groundwork so that your daughter or son will develop the foundational principles for managing conflict, standing up for themselves, and making healthy choices within their friendships. GirlPower & GoodGuys will open up the line of communication between parent and their child so you can use a common language for talking about their social life. There is endless research that links healthy friendships to positive well-being. Research clearly shows that children with healthy friendships perform better academically, have higher self-esteem, a more positive body image, get involved in more leadership roles, and make smarter decisions in future relationships. Using practical, step-by-step instruction, boys and girls are taught how to comfortably put out Friendship Fires (i.e. conflict) and how to put a voice to their feelings. GirlPower & GoodGuys helps to create a climate within friendships that exudes trust, respect, and honesty. Kids learn to balance integrity and empathy within their friendships, while remembering to always celebrate their uniqueness and surround themselves with people who make them feel good. Our dynamic, engaging workshops are guided by an exciting digital slideshow with scenarios/examples that tap into the unique issues they are facing in their friendships, connecting to them on a personal level. All workshops include GirlPower/GoodGuys handouts, pencils, and stickers. Workshops are designed as assembly-style (minimum of 25 participants) to enhance the experience for the students and amplify the impact.
