Girls Talk events are special, gender-specific group discussions for pre-teen and teen girls. All discussions will be age-appropriate and a variety of views may be shared in this informal, “open chat” forum. Girls have an opportunity to air concerns and ask questions of adult women in a safe, accepting and nonjudgmental environment.
