Girl Talk Inc. will focus on areas such as Health & Wellness, Confidence Building, Coping Skills, College Preparedness, and Sex Education just to name a few. With these tools available to young girls, it is our goal to equip them with life skills that will enable them to make good decisions and become successful in achieving their personal and professional goals.
Girl Talk Inc. is a nonprofit organization created to empower and motivate girls to be their BEST! Here, young girls talk freely about the issues that affect them on a daily basis. The young girls that attend Girl Talk know that they have someone they can trust and confide in, who will listen and be there for them when they feel unsure. They know that Girl Talk Inc. strives to help them navigate through any life issues that may come up in their journey to adulthood. We arm young girls with life skills that will help them to be successful in school, have positive social interactions with their peers, and boost their self-esteem to create a positive self-image.
It is our goal to give girls a voice and provide the mentoring and resources needed for young girls to reach their true potential. Girl Talk educates, help builds self-esteem, and foster independence by having volunteer staff on hand that are experienced in life issues that young girls face. Our staffing model also includes advisors and facilitators that possess the expertise needed to mentor and guide our girls in the areas that impact them the most.
