Girls aren’t the problem. They’re the solution. This is at the heart of Hardy Girls Healthy Women’s revolutionary Summer Institute. Join girls’ development experts Lyn Mikel Brown, EdD, Mary Madden, PhD, and Jackie Dupont, LMSW this summer to learn how to work with girls to create a better world.

"The Hardy Girls Summer Institute is a rare opportunity for those who work with and care about girls to explore new understandings about girls' development, learn strength-based approaches, and imagine creative ways to engage girls in social change," says Brown. "It's some of the most exciting and meaningful work we do."

Attendees will leave with the knowledge and skills to:

  • Support and inspire girls to voice their thoughts and feelings
  • Cultivate “hardiness zones” – safe spaces where girls learn what it means to work in coalition and become allies 
  • Teach media literacy skills to girls 
  • Support and scaffold girls’ activism
  • Engage girls in their schools and communities to create change

Continuing Education Credits are available for this event: 16 hours Social Work, 16 hours CHES (Category I), 1.6 general CEUs
