The Women's Resource Center is looking to broaden our statistics surrounding negative outcomes of adolescent girls (drug/alcohol abuse, teen pregnancy, bullying, suicide, etc.) and why teaching coping methods such as communication and conflict resolution work well to protect young girls. Research on why these negative outcomes affect the adolescent age group is also needed. Having data on girls in the Philadelphia, Bucks, Montgomery, and Delaware counties of PA is ideal for our purposes. Thanks!
Our program, Girls Lead, aims to teach young girls valuable skills in order to deal with conflict in a healthy way. By going to schools in the region, we are able to reach many girls and effectively inform them about these subjects in a safe and welcoming environment. Implementing new programs and identifying school liaisons requires money provided by grants we've applied to, and the data gathered helps us build a stronger grant application.
The mission of the Women's Resource Center is to help women and girls successfully navigate life’s transitions and inspire others to do
the same. By providing resources, tools and support for today, we create hope for tomorrow.
