This is a 6 day course on teen dating violence and other abuses that girls and young women face.

Today young women are faced with more obstacles than ever in their everyday lives:

  • Teen dating violence
  • Gang violence
  • Bullying
  • Street sexual harassment
  • Teen pregnancy
  • And the hurtful impact of gender socialization

These are a small number of challenges these young women face. The Girl's Empowerment workshop  will explore these challenges and provide participants with the skills and information needed to setup peer to peer groups and community action projects for young women. This course is also a ideal for people who work with youth such as teachers, social workers, peer leaders, counselors, youth advocates, etc. to enhance their work with young women.
