Girls Thriving

Girls Thriving Program

Girls Thriving is a holistic program aimed at increasing a teenage girl’s ability to make safe, healthy choices and thrive academically and socially.

Our series of personal development classes are highly interactive and offer a safe place for girls to learn effective social and emotional coping strategies. Even better, teenagers gain a supportive community of others like them, where they can grow and share together.

Once your daughter or daughters complete the series, they can continue their personal growth by attending monthly workshops.

All teenage girls ages 12-18 are welcome, regardless of your membership status with Fresh Start.

College Bound

Once per year, we host a special event for high school girls who are exploring their educational options after graduation.

Internship Program

Any girl attending an Arizona college in the fall can apply for an intensive program with Fresh Start, where they’ll receive academic, financial and career guidance while developing their professional skills. Once completing the program each girl will then be eligible to apply for the E. Jean Goulet Scholarship. 

To apply for the summer internship program, please contact Keisha Jean-Baptiste at
