Congratulations to all members of our Let's Talk - Girls Only program on winning an Exemplary Practice Award. The “Let’s Talk – Girls Only” workshops have been run for the last two years.  The topics covered include healthy relationships, conflict management (gossip), and healthy body image.  Through these workshops, we inform young women of their rights, responsibilities and options.  Our goal is to help young women on their journey through life.  We endeavor to promote the development of confidence and self-awareness which will allow them to become positive role models for others.
In addition, recognizing that young men also face challenges, this year we have also developed a separate session that focuses on the challenges of male adolescents called “Let’s Talk – Boys Only”.  By giving our students a voice in these specialized groups, we have been able to provide valuable information and strategies which have helped them navigate through life’s challenges.
