Mission Statement

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

Description

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 is started and 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 high school girl who wants to make a difference in her community by "Starting a Girl Talk Chapter". All of Girl Talk materials are only available online.

Girl Talk is designed to reach ALL middle school girls. Therefore, we welcome non-traditional chapters (home school, athletic teams, youth groups, etc.) as well. We encourage high school girls to think outside the box if their school is unable to host Girl Talk meetings before or after school.

The concept of Girl Talk was developed in the Fall of 2002 by Haley Kilpatrick, Founder and Executive Director of Girl Talk. At the age of 15, she started an organization that could help middle school girls with the daily triumphs and trials of being a young teen.

Everything you need to know about starting a chapter and making it official is on our
Web site.
