The Girls Circle model is a structured support group for girls from 9-18 years. The model integrates relational theory, resiliency practices and skills training in a specific format designed to increase positive connection, personal and collective strengths, and competence in girls. It aims to counteract social and interpersonal forces that impede girls’ growth and development by promoting an emotionally safe setting where girls can develop caring relationships and use authentic voices. This program has proven to have a positive impact and effect on the overall success and well-being of girls in a safe, open, and non-judgmental setting. Girls Circle is the first gender-responsive program in the country to demonstrate effectiveness in decreasing female juvenile delinquency.
