Teen Girls 13 – 17Helping Girls Through Adolescence!
Being a teen girl has never been easy. In today’s society, however, the pressure is even more pronounced. Run by program director Krystle Kercado, Sister Circles encourages self-worth and offers teen girls a safe place to discuss many issues including:
- Social media that values girls more if they are beautiful
- Pressures to be smart, but not so smart as to make boys feel less important.
- Physical pressures from boys
- Bullying from either other girls or boys.
- The belief that growing up means growing apart from Mom.
Sister Circles runs 2/times per week for 90 minutes. Conversation flows easily with engaging group activities including art projects, hair care, nail and skincare, crafting, and more. Short outings are planned for the near future. If you think your teen daughter would benefit from a supportive group, please contact Krystle.
17 – Days
Seventeen Days is a partnership with Flatbush Development Corporation @ Glenwood Community Center and New York City Teens Connection. Seventeen days is an interactive film to teach young girls how to protect themselves from teen pregnancy. Within seventeen days there has been an increase in abstinence among teenage girls. At Glenwood we have seen a positive response from the young girls who have watched seventeen days.
If your daughter or someone else you know would like to join our programs, please contact us!
