Girl Stance gives our girls the tools to navigate the 20th century with grace.

Becoming whole is having awareness of the entire self: physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual.

Belonging is a feeling of security and support. When we feel we belong, we can bring our authentic selves
to any situation that arises.

Civil behavior is recognizing, with childlike curiosity, that other people are different than you.

Civility is a voice that speaks from a respectful and grounded place.

Etiquette is the elevated physical and emotional regulation of self observed in physical and virtual spaces.

Vulnerable people are people who lack guiding principles to move the mind, body, and spirit forward together. It means communities that are less protected. Communities that are more open and susceptible to societal ills due to a number of reasons.
