Girls Group at PECI

Girls Group at PECI is ROC’s new teen program initiative, in partnership with the high school in Prince Edward County. The program goal is to build self-esteem and confidence, critical thinking skills, social connectedness and overall resiliency in participants. We accomplish this through in school and off campus (after school) activities and conversations surrounding lifestyle choices, relationships, and creating a sense of belonging in the girl’s school and larger community.

Relationships

Provides a safe space for sharing about the pressures girls face in this age group. Group discussions and 1-1 adult mentoring develops a bond between peers as they discover their similarities and become respectful of their differences.

Mentorship

Teens foster healthy relationships with adult mentors, enabling them to experience valuable leadership skills. The goal of PECI Girls Group is to help teenage girls build their self-confidence and love who they are.

Nutritious snacks and meals are provided at all ROC programs and there are no fees to attend.

Preparing for the Future

Teens are encouraged with homework support by connecting them with resources within their high school for the purpose of their educational success. Discussions surrounding options and intentions for after graduation are also shared.
