We Do It For Them
A study of 4-H programs (programs provide youth outreach opportunities by connecting youth to their communities.) looked at how positive influences in the lives of youth help protect against problem behaviors. The study included approximately 4,000 youth, from nearly all 50 states, with various levels of involvement and concluded that youth consistently engaged in 4-H were found to be at much lower risk of having personal, social, and behavioral problems than other youth. Compared to their peers, youth involved in 4-H programs excel in several areas – youth.gov
Intervening in the lives of girls at-risk of entering the juvenile justice system.
Preventing recidivism or waiver of girls already in the juvenile justice system.
Advocating for the vulnerability, safety, rights and equailty of girls in the community.
The home should be a place of comfort and guidance, where troubled girls can find peace away from the pressures of teen life. When home life is disrupted, girls start to act out in risky ways, the parent-child relation becomes distant & parents may feel a sense of lost of control. All Girlz is here to help parents and their daughter(s) navigate through these challenging times.
Youth become involved with the juvenile justice system due to delinquency or committing a criminal act. Some encounter the system for status offenses that are illegal only because of their age (truancy, underage drinking, & running away from home). Whether pre- or post- adjudication, All Girlz will advocate & support girls throughout the process to ensure the best possible outcome.
Every aspect of a girl’s life affects her ability to learn and succeed in school. Peers, family, school, community, social media and technology are all contributing factors that influence her motivation and inspire her to learn. However, girls affected by conflict & crisis encounter more obstacles in school. We must invest in resources and policies that help prevent these obstacles.
With the leadership and commitment of the community and local leaders, we can take significant steps toward reducing risk factors (drugs, delinquency, dropping out of school, & teen pregnancy) and strengthen protective factors (opportunities, recognition, & exposure) throughout a young girl’s development. When obstacles and barriers are eliminated, we promote healthy, pro-social growth in girls.

All Girlz offer a mediation alternative that promotes healthy communication between parents and their daughters. All too often, relationship conflicts are potentially faced with high-risk behaviors such as running away, breaching rules and breakdown of the parent-child relationship. Mediation offers an opportunity of conflict resolution to promote understanding in order to resolve the issues within. It is most useful in situations where behaviors presented by girls are clearly underlining symptoms of internal or external struggles.

Three Benefits of Peer-To-Peer Therapy
Peer Wisdom is Magical
Motivation to deal with internal struggles
Unplugged is a peer-to-peer chat session that provides troubled and at-risk girls with the opportunity to share their internal struggles with others and develop strategies to navigate their feelings. When girls realize they are not alone in their feelings and that they have ideas that can help each other, they naturally feel empowered. In peer-to-peer chat, girls discover a feeling of relief and hope in talking with other teens experiencing similar situations in their lives. Girls realize their struggles are normal.
