Teen girls between the ages of 13-17 (or 18 year old's who are still in high school) meet weekly in this exciting new group focused on creating positive social change. We explore topics related to racism, classism, sexism, homophobia, the media's representation of bodies and so much more. Together, girls learn about and practice ways to address these issues and make a difference in our community. The group meets at The Oasis Center for Women and Girls and is offered on a sliding-fee scale with scholarships available for girls from families experiencing financial hardship.

Oasis facilitates outreach to girls throughout the community using the Girls Circle curricula model, a research-based, nationally utilized, structured support group for girls that integrates relational theory, resiliency practices, and skills training in a specific format designed to increase positive connection, personal and collective strengths, and competence in girls. Girls Circle aims to counteract social and interpersonal forces that impede girls' growth and development by promoting an emotionally safe setting and structure within which girls can develop caring relationships and use authentic voices. 


The Girls Circle encourages girls to share experiences that are helpful to one another. To participate, girls need only have the desire, make a commitment to attend the meetings, and agree to follow the circle guidelines, i.e. respect, no put-downs or interruptions, offer experiences - not advice, keep the focus on oneself, and keep what's said in the group private. Girls are free to share at their own pace. 

We are facilitating or have facilitated Girls Circles at Buck Lake Elementary , Boys & Girls Club, Capitol City Youth Services, Godby High School, Ghazvinni Learning Center, Life Skills, HOPE Community, Rickards High School, Leon High School, Fairview Middle School, Griffin Middle School, Nims Middle School, Stars Middle School, Cornerstone Learning Community, Palmer Monroe Teen Center, and Girls Can Do Anything Summer Camps.   The circles are funded several different ways - thanks to a grant from the Department of Juvenile Justice, the Community Human Service Partnership (Leon County & the City of Tallahassee), private donations and by parents and schools.

If you are interested in bringing a Girls Circle to a school or community group, please contact Kyndra by email or call 850-222-2747. 

This program is sponsored by The Oasis Center for Women & Girls, Inc. and the State of Florida.
