Mission

Girls Group empowers young women in middle school and high school to achieve emotional and economic self-sufficiency by graduating from high school and becoming first-generation college graduates. Girls Group provides year round programming and mentoring to develop character, leadership, self-confidence, and social consciousness, including the desire and ability to mentor others.

Values

Girls Group mentors and participants create a positive, affirming atmosphere where young women work towards their goals of achievement and economic independence. Girls Group helps young women to find their voice, define their goals and dreams, and establish support networks to move forward in the world with pride and self-confidence. Girls Group provides daily support to the young women as they finish high school, avoid drug and alcohol abuse, delay pregnancy, and build safe and healthy relationships.

Girls Group Participants

Weekly programming takes place within the Ann Arbor Public Schools and at Peace Neighborhood Center. Girls Group participants are committed to graduating from high school, and developing the academic and emotional skills necessary for future success. Girls Group participants plan for college by attending college tours, working on applications and essays with Girls Group mentors, and improving their academic performance.
