Girls in the Know

Our mission is to promote healthy communication between mothers and daughters through education that will encourage pre-teen girls to make positive decisions as they mature.

Girls in the Know educates and empowers girls ages 9-13 and their mothers through our 4-week speaker series led by female professionals in their field. Topics discussed include: friendships, body image, bullying, puberty and much more. Volunteers are needed for our many fundraising events. We can provide credit for volunteer hours. Contact Girls in the know @ 314-717-1270 or by email Vanessa Schrader.
