The program was created to:
Once a month
Meetings and Activities are held a different venues in Southern California
Meetings are held to:
Members are between 6 – 16 years of age. Swirls for Girls is the answer for girls that are interested in learning about cultural diversity, discussing topics not learned at school, creating friendships and listening to stories from girls / women girls just like them.
We accept applications for girls 17 – 24 years of age. Junior mentors are typically girls who have already experienced similar life situations that our Swirls Girls are experiencing (or will experience). They share their own stories and even advise our members (girls, moms/caregivers) on how to deal with a situation.
We accept applications for women 24 years and older. Mentors would essentially be assisting the members the same way a junior mentor would.
This is another area Swirls for Girls is unique. Parents/Caregivers can attend the meeting to learn what is being taught to our girls. The adults are usually in one room and the girls in another. Discussions between adults are very candid. Adults are able to ask questions and also contribute to discussions with their own opinions and share stories as well as concerns.
