Integrated Learning and Personal Development Programs:
Integrated Learning and Personal Development Programs are based on the belief and experience that learning issues and personal concerns are integrated, interrelated, and interconnected and best enhanced once a relationship has been established! It is important to explore both learning and personal development, as they are equally valid and can be taught and coached simultaneously. A program is vital to determine each girl’s needs, interests, and strengths. It creates a baseline and helps to clarify priorities and objectives in both learning and personal development. A program provides accountability, focuses activities for each session, helps determine criteria for evaluation, and facilitates a systematic approach to teaching and coaching.

Girls today are facing insurmountable pressures to be successful, thin, popular, beautiful, and good at everything. Girls today live in a stressful and competitive world of eating disorders, cyber bullying, “sexting”, and “micro-celebrity”. Girls have more choices now than ever before and their lives are moving at an exponential pace. There is a clear need to help girls slow down in order to create space to reflect and connect with themselves, NOT the false or idealized sense of achievement, popularity, and perfection they see all around them or feel they “should” strive to be. Girls who don’t know who they are, look outside of themselves for definition. They turn to perfectionism, drugs, alcohol, academics, eating disorders, compulsive exercise, and relationships to find a sense of belonging and purpose. Life can feel out of balance and anxiety producing for these girls! Through Bold New Girls, girls can learn that they have value and worth, they matter, and they can make a difference in this world!
