Ms. Patricia D Martinez

Term:

Since Dec 2005

Profile:

Co-Founder of La Casa de los Niños, mother of Lauren and grandmother of Kailee and Cameron to whom the project is dedicated.

Leadership Statement:

La Casa de los Niños has been and continues to be an inspiration to Patricia and David and has greatly assisted in their healing from the loss of their family. Out of these tragic losses -the kind that most parents can’t bear to imagine- was born and grew a source of love and inspiration for an entire community of children - a place that encourages them to bloom, and provides resources they would not otherwise encounter. We have experienced healing to our souls…we feel…lucky.

Category:
Afterschool Enrichment
Population Served:
Children Only (5 - 14 years)
Female Children ( 5 - 14 years)
Female Youth/Adolescents (14 - 19 years)

Program Description:

The Girl’s Circle has been developed to support young girls in the transition from girls to young women. It is designed to foster self-esteem, help girls maintain authentic connection with peers and adult women in their community, counter trends toward self-doubt, and allow for genuine self-expression through verbal sharing and creative activity. We provide a safe place for the girls to explore feelings and options available while moving into and through the teenage years. Each week, a group of six to ten girls of similar age and development meet with a facilitator for two hours. During this time, the girls take turns talking and listening to one another about their concerns and interests. The girls express themselves further through creative or focused activities such as role playing, hiking, drama, journalling, poetry, drama, dance, drawing, collage, clay, and so on. Often themes are introduced which relate to the girls’ lives, such as being a girl, trusting themselves, friendships, body image, goals, competition, and decision -making.

Program Long-Term Success:

The development of the girls confidence to move through the ever changing world today and tomorrow.

Program Short-Term Success:

The opportunity for the girls to hold on to their voices and stay true to themselves, counter trends towards self-doubt, and improve self-esteem, enhance judgement and critical thinking skills for wise and healthy choices
