Registration, Tuition, Waitlist
What is Girls Take Charge?
Girls Take Charge is a life and leadership program for elementary, middle, and high school girls. The program is highly interactive and provides an opportunity for girls to fully express their thoughts and experiences!
The Girls Take Charge curriculum has been carefully designed after years of research, surveys, and facilitation to ensure it maximizes all opportunities to teach girls key life and leadership skills that matter in real life. All girls will benefit from the specially designed set of workshops provided by GTC.
What will the week be like?
The curriculum is specialized based on the girls' school level so they learn age-appropriate skills while being surrounded by girls of a similar age. Most importantly, the program is designed to be fun and interactive!
What are some of the skills that you focus on during the week?
While our high school program focuses more heavily on leadership skills development, our middle school curriculum first focuses on self-awareness. It is important for any future leader to first understand and realize who they are. We do several activities focused on developing strong and positive characteristics, skills, and interests. Some of the lessons used include:
Growing Positive Relationships
Who Attends Girls Take Charge?
GTC is open to all girls who are rising 5th graders to 9th graders. Participants are excited about their futures and look forward to spending time with fellow value-based girls, but we also have activities that help girls who are more shy to learn about themselves, to participate, and to be leaders as well.
Please note this is not a behavioral modification program nor is the staff certified professional counselors.
Who are the staff members for the program?
Highly experienced educators serve as facilitators and program leaders for the week. College-aged women serve as university facilitators so girls can learn from young women who have recently walked in their shoes. All GTC team members have all levels of child safety clearances. The GTC team has a passion for helping girls realize their full potential and can't wait to interact with your daughter.
