Girl's Circle Training

A workshop for service providers, educators, therapists, probation officers, social workers, volunteers, mental health workers, parents & others who support girls’ growth and development. Girls Circle training has been applied to programs such as positive youth development, juvenile probation, schools, health education, boys and girls clubs, substance abuse prevention, pregnancy prevention, outdoor adventure groups, and gang-prevention.
We are excited that we are now approved to offer 13 continuing education credits (or CEUs) to social workers through Girls Circle Association’s Approved Program Status with NASW.
