Our signature workshop is Girl-Centered Principles in Practice:
Three core principles of girl-centered practice are explored: girls as experts, mutuality and honoring the lived experiences of girls. Join this discussion-based workshop to learn how to implement the key elements of girl-centered practice in day to day interactions with girls.
