Girls Count Collective

The Girls Count Collective is a day program designed so that girls can be in charge of their own learning. Rather than “teachers” and “students”, we have “guides” and “learners”. Guides facilitate processes such as goal-setting, healthy communication, crafting interests into learning opportunities, finding resources, problem-solving, and working through difficulties. They teach specific content on a “need to know” basis depending on learner interests and need. Learners create their own curriculum, set the pace for their own learning and reach goals through mindful goal-setting practices.

Our collective is a democracy where the participants have a say in how the program is run. Before you sign up your child, make sure to get their consent and agreement in doing so.

The day program is built upon the ideas of self-directed learning
