The purpose of the "Girls' Club" is to support the growth of a positive self-image, increase effective communication skills and to encourage a sense of empowerment in young women. This book can be used to help you set up a very beneficial group just for girls in your school. These sessions could be conducted as small or large group counseling, or as an extra-curricular activity group. These clubs use activities and guided discussions to help girls decipher and understand the myriad of mixed messages they are confronted with on a regular basis. Girls' clubs require little to get started beyond passionate facilitators who want to encourage the positive development of young women.
