"Although many, if not most, national programs designed to support girls in the past 15 years have focused on self-esteem and other internal, psychological issues, HGHW is one of the few programs that addresses girls’ lives in relational and social contexts. We believe that it is not the girls, but rather the culture in which they live that is in need of repair. The developmental psychology concept of 'hardiness' shifts attention from the individual to their environment-families, schools, and community organizations- as the key agents of change in girls’ lives."

The website offers access to curricula such as:

  • From Adversaries to Allies: A Curriculum for Change (6-8 grade)
  • Stronger Together: A Strength-Based Curriculum for Elementary School Girls (2-6 grade)
  • A Facilitator's Guide to Becoming a Muse

 

"I believe that girls and women have a right to be themselves and that they are just as strong and capable as anyone else. Hardy Girls Healthy Women has taught me how to speak up in situations that might be uncomfortable and has set me up for greater opportunities in life." - Mackenzie
