Girl Talk provides a framework where teenage girls can meet together to find strength, learn new skills and create a network of support.

High school girls develop leadership skills as they guide weekly meetings for middle school girls, and middle school girls learn vital skills during their most formative years.

“Girl Talk brought the best out of me. It made me become conscious of the value of my diversity and the worth of my word.”

— Girl Talk Leader

THE HISTORY OF GIRL TALK

 

Girl Talk began in 2002 when one high school girl identified a problem and decided to make a difference. Haley Kilpatrick founded the first Girl Talk Chapter in Albany, Georgia, to help her younger sister through the challenging years of middle school.

Today, Girl Talk has over 485 Chapters and has inspired over 70,000 girls across the nation and the world.

The Girl Talk program helps girls recognize various styles, characteristics and approaches of leadership and then gives them the opportunity to put them into practice. At Girl Talk, we believe there are no limits to girls’ potential, and we strive to create an environment that inspires, motivates and cultivates confidence and other leadership qualities.

#ScholarshipSpotlight: Hanna Meyers, Ron Bell Inspirational Leader of the Year My Girl Talk

“Before Girl Talk, I let my introversion consume me because I had no idea a ‘quiet leader’ could exist. I relied heavily on my peers to be the first to speak up or to take action. Now, I know a quiet leader is exactly who I am, and through Girl Talk, I found a balance between using my voice and letting others use theirs. But the most fulfilling of all, I am discovering opportunities every day to encourage others to find their balance as well.”

- Hanna Meyers
