We inspire all girls to develop the confidence to lead by empowering one girl at a time.
All girls live confidently, lead fearlessly, and grow into women who support and encourage one another.
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. Our peer-to-peer mentoring program offers high school girls the opportunity to mentor middle school girls during their most formative years. Meetings are a safe space for all girls to share and gain perspective on common experiences that have the potential to make a permanent impact on their lives.
At Girl Talk, we believe there are no limits to a girl's potential and strive to create an environment that inspires, motivates, and cultivates confidence. And as we continue to expand throughout North America and beyond, we're committed to driving the dialogue for the next generation of women leaders.
Our tagline captures our committment to being the reliable resource for all girls wanting to learn the language that will motivate them today, tomorrow, and beyond.
As we look to the future of our organization, our foundation sits solidly on the tenant of leadership. It is our mission to equip all girls (ages 10-18) with the skills they need to feel confident in their abilities to lead.
Part of the opportunity is properly educating our participants through leadership literacy, so that they can recognize the various styles, approaches, and characteristics of leadership, and then put them into practice. Girl Talk provides the platform necessary to support the next generation of women leaders through our programmatic offerings and the formation of a life-long network of leaders.
