Siskiyou Girls Circles
Now enrolling for our Fall Circles (grades 6th-12th)
Our Siskiyou Girls Circles offers a safe and supportive place for girls to connect in their journey through adolescence. Circle provides a place to ask bigger questions and to go a little deeper — bridging the relationships between feelings, mindset, and choices. We utilize intentional conversation, activities, art, and really fun outings — giving rise to new friendship, empathy, laughter, creativity, and hope in the knowing that they’re not alone! Circles create an intentional space for youth and teens to explore all the thrills, challenges and confusion in a “me too” environment. We intentionally plan each circle based on the groups needs- to explore and reflect on meaningful and relevant social, emotional, academic and familial journeys. Held by 2-3 mentors in each circle, our time together is connective, fun, non-stressful, empowering, and often enlightening. Circles are built on confidentiality and kindness, utilizing a strengths-based and growth mindset approach.
A typical circle includes
supporting* A moment to land and snack and breathe.
* Interactive games to emotionally “open” the space
* A check in time where we hold space to bear witness to one another’s worlds
* A specific topic introduced (age / developmental specific)
* An art or follow up activity to deepen the message
* Closing time to share, reflect or adopt new tools
* We also engage on 1 or more outings a session, workshops and self-defense
Please note: the Siskiyou Circle is meant as a support system for your child. We are NOT counseling or therapy.

We offer concepts, contexts, tools and reflection for navigating important experiences common to the adolescent journey. For more information please reach out!by email to info@FlipSideAshland.com.
