    Parent-Daughter Workshops with Girls Leadership Institute
     

    Girls Leadership offers a series of courses for girls and their parents to build emotional intelligence. In the upcoming workshops held at Oak Knoll, parent-daughter pairs will learn about identifying healthy relationships, finding their voices, and communicating more effectively. Girls also develop resilient responses to conflict, drama, challenges, and mistakes. The program is interactive, fun, and enlightening, and it's also a great opportunity to gain insight and spend time with your daughter in a new and different way.
