Girls Stepping Up to Success

Girls develop resiliency through physical safety, a structured environment, academic skill building, high quality homework help, engaging activities, conflict resolution skills, positive social experiences, and supportive relationships with adults. Elements of the program include:

--KidzLit, a research-based literacy program specifically designed for the afterschool environment.

--Enrichment activities such as creative and performing arts, health and fitness, life skills, games, and free play.

Protective factors are built through group settings that provide supportive relationships, opportunities to belong, and activities that promote skill building.

Positive social norms are built through rules, expectations, and experiences that promote decision making, problem solving, and peaceful conflict resolution.
