Frequently Asked Questions
Who is this course for?
This course is designed for girls 13-17 and their parents.
What is the basis of the course?
The course is rooted in social emotional learning which has been shown to: improve social behavior, improve attitude about self and others, reduce emotional distress and problem behaviors and increase academic success.
Girls spend 65% of their time online. Education overall is moving to a more digital platform with more schools ditching books for laptops and iPads. This gives girls the opportunity to use their time online more valuably as well as to connect with girls around the world, bonding over topics that are relevant to them.
What kind of time commitment is expected?
You can plan for the course to take approximately 75 minutes per week. In addition, there are some fun activities that come with every class in the form of a workbook. We meet every Friday at 8PM EST for a group discussion.
Does my daughter need her own e-mail account?
That is up to you! There will be separate student emails sent out and if you choose for her to opt-in to them, then we recommend that she have a separate e-mail address.
What is required in order to take this course?
You will need a computer, a webcam & microphone (may already be built in), and a paper journal.

Once the course starts, you'll have full access to all content for the next 12 months. We want to give your daughter the opportunity to revisit the lessons as many times as she likes.
Where do we submit our assignments? Where do we meet?
We will use Google Drive for assignments and Google Hangouts for video conferencing. Just in case you forget things, we'll send you an invite to our weekly chat via your Google Calendar.
