e-Connections Post Albert Einstein

Albert Einstein Middle School has started “The Girls Circle,” a structured support group for girls. The program 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. It 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.
