Today's young people are faced with more challenges than those of generations before, courtesy of social media. Studies show that technology is having emotional implications that have long-term effects. The excessive media consumption is linked to less happiness, less social skills, less sense of community (FOMO is Real!), and less mental stability. All of these issues intersect and contribute to low self-worth, which directly impacts positive relationships with others.
PACT helps young adults recognize the power of self-worth and its significance in maintaining healthy relationships. We promise young people ages 16-24 a BOLD lifestyle. For us, such a daring, brave and fearless way of life means having the confidence and people skills to command and manage equal partnerships. We believe that by honoring ourselves - our bodies, our values, our voice - we can build happy, healthy and fulfilling relationships in our community.
To help reduce the spread of COVID 19, we have paused our in-person programs on high school and college campuses, as well as at other agencies.
Virtual programming is available, though! Contact our Program Facilitator by text or phone at 323-362-2268 or email at Michelle@girlspact.org to coordinate a workshop. Our curriculum can be customized to meet the needs of any group of young people ages 16-24.
The pandemic has made us rally the strength (and creativity) of the human spirit. We are grateful to have the opportunity to serve young people coast to coast.Close
