Learning assertiveness, awareness, prevention, and response.
Each day has a one hour safety lesson. Girls start by brainstorming ideas with their group to answer questions like "what should you do to be aware of your surroundings?", or "how can you present yourself confidently?" Students get to share their ideas before we learn the official GirlSafe tips on the topic.
