The transitional  period between childhood and adulthood tends to be a disjointed and confusing process, leaving adolescent girls feeling out of place and awkward.

They struggle with incorporating newfound bodies and emotions  into their present  lives, unsure of their decision-making skills and their values.

With our workshops, Girls’ Rite offers them a safe rite of passage, allowing them to begin  their transition into young women with confidence.

Choose from our ‘A La Carte’ menu of topics to ensure that your group gets the information that is most pertinent to them.

Girls’ Rite also brings parents into the process, allowing them to receive information together with their daughters.  In ‘The Talk” workshop, open the doors of communication with your daughter as our facilitators guide you through the historically awkward process of talking to your child about puberty.
