Empowering girls and women for life.

GIRLS AND GRIT!® Building Skills for Happiness, Hardiness and Mindfulness

A Group for Middle & High School Girls

What does “grit” mean anyway?  Courageous, determined, resilient.  The kind of stuff it takes to be your real self in today’s world.  Granted, it’s not necessarily an easy road.  The cool thing is, girls can empower and support each other to be their authentic selves.  Our Girls and Grit Groups* provide girls a place to connect with others, build skills, celebrate successes, and create more of the life you want.

 Some of the things girls like best about these groups are:

  • Finding and giving support in a safe space with other girls
  • Learning more about “inner” skills, the stuff inside that helps us get through challenging times. Some of these skills are Mindfulness, Practicing gratitude and positive thinking, and Stressing less by taking care of body and soul
  • Practicing “outer” skills, things that can support us from the outside, such as: Investing in social connections, Working through conflict in positive ways, Carrying out acts of kindness


*We offer two separate Girls And Grit Groups: one for middle school girls and one for high school girls.


FOR PARENTS: We like to meet regularly with parents. This provides us an opportunity to let you know about the skills we are teaching and ways that you can support this skill development and hardiness at home.  Additional parent coaching is available upon request.  We look forward to a collaborative working relationship with you.
