Raising Resiliency in Girls -  Thursday January, 25 6:00pm (Speaker starts at 6:30) - Space is running out!  Adults Only!

Eager to learn about the pressures that are unique to being a girl in 2018 and how you can help girls navigate these challenges with confidence?

Please RSVP - to guarantee your space!

We invite you to join Girls Leadership’s Colorado Senior Educator, Kim O’Malley as she guides parents and teachers in how to help girls practice assertive self-expression, emotional intelligence, and healthy relationships, preparing them for a life of personal and societal leadership. Kim’s engaging presentation is based on the nationally recognized presentation given by Simone Marean, Founder and Executive Director of Girls Leadership, teaching girls to be brave, resilient, and connected from kindergarten through high school. This talk is relevant for girls PRE-K through High School - and really beyond.
