Today we visited St. Mary’s College in Morega, California for an event with Girl Talk: Desire to Inspire.

Girl Talk was founded by one of our Ask, Listen, Learn Superstars, Haley Kilpatrick. The program helps middle school girls build self-esteem, develop leadership skills and recognize the value of community service through working with their peers and influencing younger girls. The Foundation for Advancing Alcohol Responsibility is proud to have been able to work with them for a long time.

We went to St. Mary’s College to encourage the girls at the Julie Foudy Sports Leadership Academy camp to start Girl Talk chapters at their own schools. We ran through what a Girl Talk event would be like and demonstrated the value this program can have for younger girls in their schools and communities. We wanted to be sure the girls recognize how valuable their experiences can be when they take the time to reflect and share, and we wish them all the success with their chapters!
