We offer workshops that support the emotional and physical well-being of adolescent girls throughout their development.
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.
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 and the birds and the bees.
Common Questions and ConcernsWhat exactly do your workshops teach? Don’t they teach sex ed in schools? How is this program different? We’d rather teach our kids about this stuff at home. If kids talk about sex, aren’t they more likely to engage in it? We don’t want someone else telling our kids what to believe or how to behave. How can we support our kids and talk to them without feeling so awkward?
