Fairfield’s new Girls Circle

Fairfield+PAL+Center%27s+newest+youth+group+for+girls.

Fairfield PAL Center’s newest youth group for girls.

The Fairfield Police Activities League, together with the Soroptimists International of Central Solano County, invite local girls ages 13-18 to join them for the next Girl’s Circle. The Girls Circle model, a structured support group for girls integrates relational theory, resiliency practices, and skills training in a specific format designed to increase positive connection, personal and collective strengths, and competence in girls.  It aims to counteract social and interpersonal forces that impede girls’ growth and development by promoting an emotionally safe setting and structure within which girls can develop caring relationships and use authentic voices.

The next circle will focus on Empowerment and Identity on Social Media.  This circle will meet for 6 weeks, every Wednesday at 5pm kicking off with an orientation on March 3, via Zoom.   (There will be no circle on April 7 during the FSUSD Spring Break.)

Empowerment and Identity on Social Media is a curriculum with essential tools and resources to promote healthy development for youth growing up in today’s digital world. Providing skills development for media literacy, digital citizenship, and more accurate information on how to use social media safely and in more of an emotionally healthy manner, this curriculum harnesses the relational strengths of youth to effectively explore the complex intersecting topics of technology, body image, cyberbullying, exploitation, and relationships.

The Fairfield PAL Program is open to Fairfield, Suisun, and Travis students ages 13-18 who are enrolled in school. Memberships are FREE and can be applied for at the Fairfield Community Center by calling 707 428-7435.  PAL Center is currently closed due to COVID-19, but is supporting members through virtual programs and a food pantry with the Solano County Food Bank.

PAL uses traditional recreational programming to create an environment that draws young people to support the development of the social and emotional skills required to promote a positive self-identity and become productive and engaged members of our community.  By offering teens programs they are interested in and choices, it becomes possible to slip in pro social skill building and development utilizing youth development practices and techniques.
