Mission Statement

Girl Talk is a 501(c)3 national nonprofit organization that establishes positive weekly student-to-student mentoring programs for middle school girls, which are led by high school girls.

We exist to help young teenage girls build self-esteem, develop leadership skills, and recognize the value of community service.

What is Girl Talk?
Girl Talk is a nationally recognized student-to-student mentoring program that offers fun, positive weekly meetings, community service projects, and friendship-building activities for middle school girls. Girl Talk meetings are led by high school girls who serve as mentors, and in turn, Girl Talk leaders develop leadership skills that they will carry with them throughout life.

Our mission is to help young teenage girls build self-esteem, develop leadership skills, and recognize the value of community service. Girl Talk is and always will be free to any middle school or high school girl who wants to make a difference in her community by mentoring a fellow sister.

Description

Middle school. Who likes middle school? Words can be hurtful, you feel like nobody gets you and all you want to do is "fit in". Wait. There ARE others that feel the same way? You are not alone. Many middle school girls struggle with the idea of meeting new people and trying to fit in. But they soon realize, with the help of older high school girls, that as middle school comes and goes, things start to shape up and they learn that high school is a lot easier.

Many middle school girls will learn that although they feel like this problem is theirs and theirs alone, that this feeling affectes EVERY girl at some point in their middle school life, and this is how Girl Talk was born.

Girl Talk Baltimore wants to make a difference in the lives of area girls. The idea is to help girls get through their challenging middle school years, with the help of high school girls and at the same time, creating and building leadership opportunities for high school girls by mentoring their younger peers. It is a fact that middle school girls look up to high school girls, and high school girls understand how the young middle school girls feel.

Girl Talk has created a student-to-student mentoring program that hopes to inspire high school girls to become positive role models to their younger peers and this would also allow middle school girls to hear the right messages from the high school girls (in partnership with teachers, coaches, and guidance counselors). Girl Talk believes that if young girls are taken care of emotionally that they would excel academically and ultimately become active in their communities by continuing to serve as volunteers.

Would you recommend Girl Talk - Baltimore Chapter?

by Lynnette D. from MD (Administrator for this Organization) (June 11, 2009)
Our female girls need guidence...they need to be educated on proper dress and how to act. They are our future Michelle Obama's and Hilary Clintons...we have to reach them now, or it may be too late.
