Parent Education

We stay connected to the parents of the girls we serve through regular phone calls, closed social media groups, email, and campus-based meetings.  We get parents to visit the school campus and engage in their child’s learning.

Girl Connect, for your students

  • Is referral or recruitment-based

  • Happens during the daytime or after school

  • Modules may be customized to fit what you need

  • Can be facilitated from between 1 – 20 sessions on your campus

  • Aligns with TEKS

  • Improves school attendance and decreases disciplinary referrals

  • Teaches 6 C’s (Collaboration, Critical Thinking, Communication, Coping Skills, Creativity, Confidence)

Professional Development for teachers

We provide in-person trainings delivered by real youth experts with school-based experience on topics such as:

  • Understanding student gender identity and how to talk about it

  • Understanding self-harm, why it happens and how to manage

  • How to create trauma-informed classrooms

  • Using a growth mindset to build students who believe in their abilities


Girls Empowerment Network’s programming is absolutely critical. I have so many girls that I’ve taught and if someone could’ve stepped in and given them that extra boost, it would’ve really altered the course of things.
