Conversations Between Us Girls.

by Youth Village on 01/30/13

We are building strong women. We believe that reaching out to the "whole child" has a huge impact on helping them become responsible self-sufficient adults. We've added an in-house program titled: "Conversations Between Us Girls" at Youth Village. We meet one Friday night each month from 6:00-8:30 to have dinner and talk! The subjects include, but are not limited to, abstinence (teen pregnancy, STD's etc.), peer pressure (drugs, bullying, etc.), appropriate attire at school, church, home, etc., dating, self-respect and respect for others. These sessions are for girls ages 12 and older and are designed to instill core values that hopefully will have a positive ripple effect on their sphere of influence. The parents must sign consent forms before the girls are allowed into these sessions. I am the lead mentor and my daughter Valerie assists me. The girls understand that we will reveal nothing discussed during these sessions unless they disclose information that can be harmful to themselves or others. Two of these girls will be featured in our upcoming anti-bullying documentary (stay tuned for more information on that project)!   Communication works!!
