Review for Girlfriends Talk Inc, Elmont, NY, USA
As a parent of two former members of Girlfriendstalk, I have had the opportunity to see first hand what this program is about. This organization has been an inspiration to a number of young girls, including my two. My daughters became a part of this program over 5 years ago. Although, they became a part at a late age when they were too old to be a member they were given the opportunity to assist. I am now proud to be a board member and offer my help where needed. This program lends itself to organize young girls together and give them information and allow the girls to express their views on necessary topics, such as, education, current events, social networking, cyber bullying, dining etiquette, poise, finances, and careers to name a few. Girlfriendstalk is concerned about the education of the young girls. They encourage reading through forming a book club, the girls are given a book to read and they review the books and share their thoughts on how the book may or may not relate to them. They have assembled together to bring a communication between mothers and daughters, through a Mother/Daughter Workshop which was something very necessary and fun to experience. Dialogue, today, between parents and their children are strained and any chance to bring them together is a great idea. I’ve watched a number of young girls attend this program and look forward to the next time they meet.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would recommend it to be a daily after school program. There is so much potential to help young girls and if you can give them a positive daily learning experience they may have less time to focus on negative influences.
