Girl Empowerment Train the Trainer
Are you a youth leader of middle and high school girls? Are you concerned with them staying safe, knowing their boundaries, and experiencing healthy relationships? Then this curriculum is for you!
The Girl Empowerment Curriculum helps youth leaders address underlying issues that impact girls and make them vulnerable to the lures of traffickers.
The instruction is interactive and focuses on teaching about the issues of trafficking and exploitation, grooming and recruiting tactics, establishing personal boundaries as well as characteristics of healthy and unhealthy relationships, how to maintain boundaries and be aware of boundary intrusions, listening to their intuition, safety planning and practicing basic self-defense strikes and escapes.
Parents and overseers will be educated about the issue and girls will increase their understanding of what sex trafficking looks like, what to do, increase self-confidence, define and defend their personal boundaries, and identify abusive or unhealthy relationship patterns.
