Girls Circle Facilitator Activity Guides-What’s Cookin’?

May 13, 2010 at 5:38 pm Leave a comment

Hopefully you’ve been able to access our most recent tip sheet on Transitions and Closures.

Doesn’t it seem like the school year accelerates to an end rather than winding down?

At Girls Circle, we have some deadlines approaching as programs are ending.  These include writing new supplemental Facilitator Activity Guide specific sessions for the Circles Across Sonoma program, an award winning collaborative program through Sonoma County Juvenile Probation, CA, and six community-based organizations serving girls in contact with the legal system.  This gender-responsive Title II program concludes June 30. Fortunately, the Sonoma County Probation Department has renewed the program for its 2010-2011 fiscal year.  This means that girls in the county will continue to be referred to the Girls Circle program.

The community-based facilitators, committed to the strengths-based approach for girls, have identified the following topics as highly relevant for girls in their Girls Circle sessions:

  • Marijuana
  • Binge Drinking* and High Risk Behaviors
  • Coping Mechanisms, and
  • Mental Health

(*On the subject of alcohol, has anyone talked with the girls in your groups about the Hello Kitty wine that’s just been released? Seriously?Also, The Marin Institute’s blog describes a really intense, super high alcohol content new beer, BrewDog, on the market now. That’s a beer equal to about one six pack.  Hopefully you can visit about these products with the girls or boys in your groups.)

We’re excited to be developing these relevant sessions now.  Once they’re complete, we’ll let you know how to purchase these to supplement your own Girls Circle curricula.

Stay well, and thank you for your continued support!
