School-Based Program
Girl Talk collaborates with Great Schools Partnership Community Schools Initiative, Knox County Schools, and Community Organizations to provide group mentoring services to 4th & 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, inside of several Knox County Elementary Schools, Girl Talk helps girls learn how to better understand and address the issues they face and ensure academic achievement & success. Through 10 weekly after school sessions, each semester, facilitated by Girl Talk volunteers, girls gain confidence, tools for academic achievement and success, and college & career learning. The girls also have the opportunity to tour colleges, universities and other training programs.
