iGirl. A place where modern girls can learn the ropes. Move over, Elsa, Anna and My Little Pony, it’s time for Sexting, Snapchat, low tops and high skirts. Parents, take a minute here and catch your breath. Ready? Good. iGirl is a straight-to-the-point, lighthearted, two- or three-day workshop that prepares 9-11 year old students who identify as girls* for the multimedia pressure-cooker they’ll soon encounter. Knowledge is power and this workshop, created by Saleema Noon B.A. M.A., will give your daughter the power to make smart decisions and to successfully navigate the changes galloping into her modern life. In a style that’s relevant to preteens, Saleema and her team take the role of big sister, tackling topics like what to expect from puberty, safety on the internet, understanding what makes a healthy body image, and how to be assertive in even the toughest situations.
