2-4-1 Girls Leadership

About 2-4-1 Girls Leadership

The 2-4-1 Girls Leadership Program puts Social Emotional Learning (SEL) front and center to help build confident, active young women who understand and appreciate the power of their voice and the many benefits of physical activity!

Program Components:

While play-based movement is a part of all 2-4-1 programs, the following is just a sampling of the topics that are covered in our comprehensive program designed intentionally for adolescent females:

  • Understanding self-esteem

  • Re-discovering things that make you happy

  • Identifying opportunities for change

  • Finding your Grit

  • Understanding the importance of goal setting

  • Developing Resilience

  • Understanding perfectionism

  • Building skills for “bouncing forward”

  • Exploring Possibility

  • Grasping the mind-body connection

  • Learn the fundamental movement skills needed for lifelong health

  • Learn the fundamental nutrition skills for lifelong health

  • Embracing the mind/body connection

  • Developing Community


How Does it Work

Our initial program is designed to immediately give girls voice and choice in the activities.  While the core leadership curriculum is standard throughout, we allow the girls to choose from a variety of physical and athletic activities based on interest, available space and equipment.  Activities vary from volleyball to yoga to flag football to fencing to group walks…you get the idea.  The sport or activity is not the key focus in this 2-4-1 program – leadership development and community building are!

The 2-4-1 Girls Leadership Program can be tailored to any school-community for girls grades 5 to 11. While designed initially for Middle School girls, the program can be adapted to other age groups.

Our ideal group sizes are between 10-24 as we need a quiet space for instruction and an open space to accommodate play-based movement.
