    “The girls support group helps boost your self-esteem and you make friends with teenagers like you. There are a lot of supportive girls here and I have made some friends from this experience. I believe that the girls support group is great and I’m hoping to see more people there in the future. If I could describe the girls support group in one word it would be enthusiastic because it just brings my day up and makes me feel wanted and welcomed. This group is very supportive, loving, and helps me I wouldn’t change anything.” -LB

    “It is helpful to talk about something you need help with to get a solution or feedback on what to do in that situation, this is what happens in the girls support group. My favorite part is getting to know new people and knowing that I’m not alone and knowing that other people are experiencing the same thing I am. To anyone who wanted to join I would tell them that it’s a great idea, I have a good time while also learning many important things that will help me as a person. One word to describe the girl support group is encouragement because I have received lots of encouragement from multiple people in the group. The girls support group is helpful and a good experience and there’s nothing I would want them to do differently.” -LR

    “The girl support group is fun I like the things that we have in common. It’s my favorite part when we make jokes and find out how many things we have in common with each other. To those interested they should join because it’s a good safe space and because they listen and give good advice. I don’t believe that the facilitators should’ve done anything differently.” -EW
