Girls for Change
Girls for Change is a 10-13 weeks group designed to facilitate connections between girls, foster a commitment to social justice topics, and develop skills to affect social change. Throughout the program, girls will learn about how systems of oppression affects them, their peers, and people in their communities. Together, they will learn the skills needed to create social change, which will culminate in the development of an individual social change project that they might want to implement upon completion of the program.
For the first 8-10 weeks, the group will focus on exploring topics such as sexism, racism, and heterosexism, as well as developing activism skills. The last 2-3 weeks will be dedicated to the development of their social change, action-oriented project. The ideas for the projects will emerge from each individual and be developed as a group. Hosting a public-service announcement about bullying? Write/perform a play about the impact of gender stereotypes? Holding a poetry slam? The possibilities are endless!
Each week you can expect the group to start and end on time. A snack will be provided, and a trained Oasis staff member will facilitate each group. Schedule and topic changes may occur based on the group dynamics.
