NEW WORKSHOP: Strategies to Transform Peer Aggression Among Girls

258-275x286We at Vermont Works for Women have designed a half-day workshop
that teaches educators, administrators, youth service providers,
coaches, parents – all adults – how to identify, address and prevent
peer aggression among girls.

And we’re bringing it to your community this fall: BURLINGTON (Sept. 6);
RUTLAND (Oct. 27); BRATTLEBORO (Nov. 11); and ST. JOHNSBURY (Dec. 11)

This interactive workshop will help you:

  • understand the dynamics of peer aggression
  • learn & understand new strategies to implement
  • hear examples & case studies first-hand from young women
  • name & claim your own anxieties around dealing with peer aggression
  • discover new ways to create supportive, girl-centered environments like
    Rosie’s Girls & Dirt Divas programs
