BGS actively engages participants in educational activities to promote mental health education and awareness. Individual program workshops range from one day, 3 days, or eight to twelve weeks.


Most BGS programs can be customized extending to three, six and nine months on-going 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,
can define their future, and can change the world.
