What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

School Based Program

Girl Talk collaborates with Great Schools Partnership Community Schools Initiative, Knox County Schools, and Community Organizations to provide group mentoring services to 4th & 5th grade girls after school. Through curriculum-based learning objectives and group mentoring, we assist in building girls’ confidence and self-esteem, preventing teen pregnancy, and increasing the likelihood of educational advancement.

Each semester, inside of several Knox County Elementary Schools, Girl Talk helps girls learn how to better understand and address the issues they face and ensure academic achievement & success. Through 10 weekly after school sessions, each semester, facilitated by Girl Talk volunteers, girls gain confidence, tools for academic achievement and success, and college & career learning. The girls also have the opportunity to tour colleges, universities and other training programs.

Girls in 6th – 12th grade from all over the city of Knoxville can apply to receive one to one mentoring. Each girl is matched with a caring adult woman who will give her the support that she needs to get through life’s challenges and transitions.

Our 1:1 Mentors are there to give our girls hope, encouragement, love, support, and confidence. Our mentors meet with their girls once a month to go on mentoring outings that cultivates the relationship and provide girls with a safe space to just be in such a chaotic and demanding world.

The Girl Talk Life Prep Academy is an elite program of Girl Talk, Inc. in which juniors and seniors can apply to participate in a 10-month experience that is both transformational and preparatory for their future. Applicants who apply will have to fulfill certain application requirements and attend 2 rounds of interviews prior to being accepted into the program.

The program kicks off with a 3 day, 2 night retreat and will prepare 11th – 12th grade girls for college, career, and life, through consecutive monthly sessions, each semester. For High School Juniors, we will cover topics on College and Career exploration and preparation. For High School Seniors, we will cover topics on College LIFE Prep, Career LIFE Prep, and General LIFE Prep (transitioning into becoming an adult, becoming a financially stable adult, finding housing, etc.).

Juniors and Seniors who participate will also have the chance to apply to participate in an 8 week paid Summer Internship to further prepare them for the workforce. This internship process will also be competitive in nature. Girls will complete a rigorous application and interview process to be potentially selected for limited internship spots.
