Budget:

Category:
Youth Development
Population Served:
Female Children ( 5 - 14 years)
Female Youth/Adolescents (14 - 19 years)

Program Description:

Our goals around strengthening the network of independent local Girls Inc. organizations include: Invest in building and supporting a base of affiliates committed to the Girls Inc. philosophy and approach to programming and who have the capacity to implement nationally and locally developed programs with integrity. Increase affiliates’ capacity to raise the level of financial resources so they can serve more girls. Provide support to provisional members to enable them to successfully achieve full member organization status with a 2 – 3 year period. We will work toward these goals through training affiliate staff and board members around two key areas: fundraising, focusing on building capacity among affiliate boards of directors, and institutionalizing effective fundraising practices; and youth development, including topics such as positive interactions with girls, group work, building a supportive environment,  and empowering girls.

Population Served:
Female Children ( 5 - 14 years)
Female Youth/Adolescents (14 - 19 years)

Program Description:

Violence Prevention Initiative: Over a decade ago, in response to our deep concern about the interplay between violence, age, and gender, Girls Inc. created Project BOLD®, a comprehensive, research-based program designed to help girls and young women avoid, address and cope with violence.  Project BOLD is a multi-phased, age-appropriate violence prevention curriculum that helps girls ages 6-18 to build the knowledge, skills and attitudes to live safer lives and create more secure environments in their homes, schools, and communities.  We are currently updating and expanding our programming around violence prevention and self-defense skills.  Goals over the next two years include: Complete Be BOLD, the program component of Project BOLD designed specifically for girls age 6-8. Update Action for Safety, a curriculum component introduced in 1997 for girls ages 9-11 by revising obsolete and dated information, and adding a section on Internet safety. Develop a series of program materials and workshops designed to address relationship violence in the lives of 15-18 year old females. Pursue community action and advocacy opportunities in conjunction with affiliates that address issues relevant to girls and violence.

Program: Substance abuse prevention

Budget:

Category:
Mental Health, Substance Abuse
Population Served:
Female Youth/Adolescents (14 - 19 years)

Program Description:

Girls Incorporated is planning to update and increase training opportunities for Girls Inc. Friendly PEERsuasion®, a gender specific substance abuse prevention program.  The program has been shown to help girls develop skills to resist pressure to use harmful substances such as alcohol, tobacco, household chemicals, and other drugs.  In this peer-education program, girls ages 11 to 14 learn healthy ways to manage stress and confront peer, media, and other pressures and then assume the roles of PEERsuaders for young girls.  The program is also available in Spanish as Persuasión positiva. We know that the program works.  In 2002, SAMHSA’s National Registry of Evidence-based Programs and Practices (NREPP) designated Girls Inc. Friendly PEERsuasion as an Effective Program under SAMHSA's previous National Registry of Effective Prevention Programs system.  Helping America’s Youth, a U.S. government Web site, rates Girls Inc. Friendly PEERsuasion as a Level 2 program, demonstrating evidence of program effectiveness.  We are currently researching current issues and trends related to girls and substance use, and updating the existing curriculum by creating additional sessions addressing any new issues identified, revising fact sheets, and updating resource links and connections.  The next step is to create a distance learning model for training that builds the capacity of Girls Inc. program staff to identify and address specific issues in their community while effectively utilizing technology.  Using independent study and webinars, Girls Inc. Training staff will design a program that engages staff in active learning by asking them to produce and share PowerPoint presentations that exemplify their learning during the training. These presentations will reflect the current issues in their communities and within the population they work with at their affiliate.  In this way, we will ensure that each affiliate is offering the most effective programming possible for the girls they serve. The presentations will be available to all Girls Inc. national and local staff on our affiliate training intranet site.
