Our School & Site-Based Program

Girl Talk collaborates with the Knoxville Education Foundation (formerly known as the Great Schools Partnership Community Schools Initiative), Knox County Schools, and Community Organizations to provide group mentoring services to 3rd –  5th grade girls after school. Through curriculum-based learning objectives and group mentoring, we assist in building girls’ confidence and self-esteem, preventing teen pregnancy, and increasing the likelihood of educational advancement.

Each semester, girls participate in 10-weekly group sessions facilitated by trained Girl Talk mentors. These sessions teach the girls healthy coping skills, offer a safe space to process their daily lives and feelings, and the opportunity to build a positive peer community.

“Before Girl Talk I didn’t think that God could love me.  But on the Retreat He reassured me that everything that happened to me happened for a reason, and one day I will find out why.  Now I know that God loves me even with everything that I have been through.”
