Thanks to Our New Program Facilitators!


On Saturday, over 30 young women from across Chicago gathered to prepare for the relaunch of Girl Talk on January 15th.  Together we discussed our values, shared our anxieties about doing the work, and learned about how trauma impacts girls in trouble with the law.  Special thanks to our leadership team member, Caryn Moore, for her insightful and important presentation about how trauma impacts girls in conflict with the law and how program facilitators should practice their own self-care to prevent vicarious trauma.

We can’t wait to get started in the New Year!  Special thanks also to our leadership member Deana Lewis who secured our meeting space and handled other important logistics to ensure that our meeting was comfortable and successful.
