Curriculum 

Girls Incorporated of Greater Atlanta implements curriculum designed to help all girls develop the skills and tools for becoming women who are healthy (strong), educated (smart) and independent (bold). Our research-based curriculum aims to enable girls to think critically about situations and to implement problem-solving techniques that produce the best outcomes for themselves and the surrounding community. We strive to encourage girls to take educated risks and master physical, intellectual and emotional challenges. Our curriculum is comprised of programs focused on empowering girls to be:

  • Friendly PEERsuasion® builds girls’ skills for resisting pressure to use harmful substances such as alcohol, tobacco, household chemicals, and other drugs
  • Preventing Adolescent Pregnancy® bolsters girls' communication and skills as well as their motivation and resources for being in charge of their sexual health and avoiding teen pregnancy

Bold

  • Leadership & Community Action® builds girls' leadership skills and creates lasting social change through community action projects
  • Allies in Action®  teaches girls how to overcome relational aggression—otherwise known as bullying
  • Project BOLD®  strengthens girls’ abilities to lead safer lives by developing strategies for self-defense, seeking out caring adults to help with personal violence, and advocating on violence issues
