GirlKind Project Program

GirlKind Project is a strength-based 12-session program designed to empower girls, 8-14 years of age, through social emotional learning. Each topic specific session promotes core competencies for Social Emotional Learning (SEL), using a positive and growth mindset approach, empowering girls to succeed in school and in life. Elias et al. (1997) defined SEL as the process of acquiring core competencies to recognize and manage emotions, set and achieve positive goals, appreciate the perspectives of others, establish and maintain positive relationships, make responsible decisions, and handle interpersonal situations constructively.

The GirlKind Project Program is designed to be incorporated into any setting where adults have the desire to empower girls through social emotional development. It can be used as part of the school curriculum or as an afterschool program, at schools. It can be part of summer programs or sports teams. The applications can be many and the possibilities endless. Anywhere where adults are passionate about making girls’ lives better by inspiring them to intentionally pursuit happiness, while supporting each other and contributing to a more compassionate world, is a good place to implement GirlKind Project.

Thanks to donations made by generous supporters, we offer the GirlKind Project curriculum, free of charge, to Title 1 schools. For information about bringing GirlKind Project to your site, through licensing opportunities, please email us at

Girls who are in high school or college and would like to empower each other, in the pursuit of happiness and a more compassionate world, are invited to open a Club GirlKind at their school/campus, under the supervision of a faculty sponsor.
