Empowering our Latinas: Group Counseling with Hispanic Girls
Your answer
Program Description: High school is an important time of transition, but also a critical time to meet the academic, personal, and socio-emotional needs of our students. For those students who enter not speaking English, it can be an even more daunting process. In this training, we will share the evolution of our group for Hispanic girls in ESOL levels 1-4 and how we have strived to meet their unique needs and support them through bi-monthly group meetings and an open door policy.
