BGS actively engages participants in educational activities to promote mental health literacy and awareness. Individual programs range from one day up to eight to twelve weeks.
Most BGS programs can be customized, extending to three, six, and nine months of ongoing programs. Program workshop presentations and materials are tailored to be developmentally appropriate for the participating age groups.
When focusing on sensitive topics surrounding mental health our utmost concern is ensuring a safe, non-judgmental, and confidential environment.
We believe all girls can embrace who they are,
define their future, and change the world.
