Why do parents enroll their daughters in our Stand Up! Speak Out!® Summer Workshops?
Some are simply looking for a fun summer activity with creative projects and outdoor games, some hope their daughters will build confidence and make new friends, and others are excited for them to learn how to manage big feelings, tackle challenges and communicate more effectively.
Some have heard of the Institute from friends who’ve been with us for years; others find us on their own and are thrilled to learn a resource like the Institute exists in Pasadena.
Each parent’s story is unique. We love to talk to parents and learn their stories, and then we to get to know their daughters even better during our week together. With Stand Up! Speak Out!®, we’ve designed a program to foster the skills our daughters need – confidence, camaraderie, creativity, and compassion. And we’ve made it super fun because that’s also what girls need. (Don’t we all, really?)
The most rewarding part is seeing the girls shine – laughing with new friends, using brave talk to share in front of the group, performing in skits, or tapping into their creative spirits making glitter jars (fun to make and great self-care tools!).
We hope your daughter will join us! Please contact Paige Hobey at PHobey@IFGD.care or at (626) 585-8075, ext. 121 with any questions! We’d love to chat with you about your daughter and share more details with you over the phone.
