IMPACTS MANY 

The program is for any girl who wants to learn more about herself, her goals, and dreams in a fun and positive environment.

 

GTC girls can be found on the fields and courts, in dance studios, on stage, and participating in various clubs and activities. GTC also works with girls who have yet to find their voice and who would describe themselves as “shy or quiet.” 

 

As a GTC team, we have a passion for working with all the girls wherever they may be in their empowerment journey.  

 

Girls who attend the program are excited and motivated about helping others and reaching their personal goals. Current leadership roles are not necessary! We work to build leadership skills and self-confidence, so no previous experience is required.

DESIGNED TO INSPIRE 

Girls participate in hands-on sessions, where they learn and grow by doing. Your daughter will participate in small group discussions, be active in team building games, and create projects that will not only teach her about her amazing self but also how to be a positive influence to others!  

 

Girls Take Charge is built on three signature pillars:

1) Sense of Self

2) Sense of Team

3) Sense of Community

 

In each of our four grade level tracks, girls participate in sessions that address these important pillars.
