Girls Circle

The YWCA Glendale and YWCA Pasadena have partnered together to offer Girls Circle to girls from Glendale and Pasadena Unified School Districts in the 20/21 school year. The Girls Circle model is a structured support group for girls and youth who identify with female development, and integrates relational theory, resiliency practices, and skills training in a specific format designed to increase positive connection and personal and collective strengths in girls. Girls Circle is listed on SAMHSA’s national registry of evidence based programs.
