  • Join Girls For a Change!

    In Girls For A Change, girls take the lead in designing a Social Action Plan related to a topic of their choice. They receive guidance and support from a Girls Facilitator, enabling them to execute their social change plan. For example, if the Action Team decides to conduct a community awareness campaign about pet neglect, the Facilitator will provide project management support and can bring professionals to the group in a volunteer role in to provide training in social marketing and public speaking to help the group craft their campaign. Likewise, if the team decided to conduct a fundraising campaign, the Facilitator would coordinate training by engaging a nonprofit development manager to volunteer their time to provide training or assistance. Register online at www.ywcaofolympia.org/programs or pick up a registration form at the front office of your school!

  • Girls Circle

    Girls Circle is delivered as a cost-free, afterschool program for 6th, 7th, and 8th grade girls. Through Girls Circle, participants have a unique opportunity to participate in a peer support group guided by a positive and caring female adult role model (Girls Circle Facilitator.) Participants meet once per week at their school for an entire school year. At each site, 6 to 10 girls participate in engaging, resiliency-building activities on a weekly basis. They receive a healthy snack, check-in with each other, and discuss the theme and objectives for the day. The Girls Circle Facilitator then leads the group through a verbal activity and a creative activity related to a specific topic. The verbal activity includes each girl taking turns talking and listening to one another in response to questions or prompts. This not only teaches girls how to participate in healthy, respectful communication, but also builds their self-confidence in their ability to express themselves. Girls communicate their ideas related to the topic through creative activities such as role-playing, journaling, drawing, etc. The group covers topics such as “Being a Girl”, “Body Image”, “Goals for Healthy Living”, “Role Models”, “Creativity”, “Relationships”, and “Growth & Self Care”. Girls always work with the same Girls Circle Facilitator, who is a trained and paid staff member of the YWCA.
