Program Overview

The GirlSpace In-School Support Program offers schools a unique chance to capitalize on support from our experienced GirlSpace staff in addressing issues youth are facing in their schools.

Sessions run 8 to 10 weeks. GirlSpace staff will facilitate programming with selected youth at your school to give them opportunities to develop self, explore challenges, and increase self-confidence, while building peer relationships and having fun in a safe setting.

Staff personnel interested in having GirlSpace run at their school can contact our GirlSpace facilitators to discuss opportunities. Programming typically runs September – December; January – March; or April – June.
