Experience of Facilitating a Program
“Initially I was very concerned whether I was really qualified to give this sort of direction. Once I was with the girls I was more relaxed because it is not as much teaching as an open dialog.”
Life Experiences Helped Prepare Facilitation
“As a school teacher I get reminded everyday that to truly connect with a student you must meet them where they are. From life experience, I know that you have to be honest with kids. They are walking lie-detectors and appreciate a straight answer.”
Benefits of Girls Inc. Programming
“I feel that the programs focus on issues that are sometimes ignored in girls: conflict resolution, financial literacy. Not only does the program bring these topics to light, but gives the girls the tools to work through the situations.”
