“GIRL GUIDE” TRAINING PREPARES YOU TO FACILITATE HEALTHY TRANSITIONS FOR GIRLS GROUPS. BECOME AN EXPERT IN HELPING THE GIRLS YOU LOVE.
Our Girl Guide training is “hand’s on” and fun! It is open to licensed professionals (school counselors, counselors, social workers, and marriage and family therapists). It is also open to parents, mentors, and clergy.
Healthy Transitions for Girls® is a “one-stop shop.” Instead of going through multiple files and workbooks to find creative interventions, Healthy Transitions for Girls is a comprehensive resource. Instead of trying to find funding to target multiple programs for bullying, mental health concerns, violence prevention or substance abuse prevention, Healthy Transitions for Girls is an “umbrella” solution. Learn more about the Healthy Transitions for Girls curriculum here.
To certify as a Healthy Transitions for Girls ® Girl Guide, you must have 12 hours of in-person training and pass an open book, 50 question test using the Healthy Transitions for Girls Curriculum. We provide the 12-hour training in a two day workshop at our Nampa, Idaho office.
