Save-the-Date for Chick Chat 2018

Saturday, February 24, 2018

Mark your calendar for Chick Chat 2018 on February 24 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Herrick Middle School.  The event sells out quickly, so make a note that registration opens at 9:00 a.m. on Tuesday, January 23, 2018.

Chick chat is a fun full-day retreat where girls have the chance to spend time in small group break-out sessions, led by professional counselors and social workers, and engage in topics such as:

  • Working on self-development in "Be Your Best Self"
  • Tackling tricky topics in "Friends, Frenimies, and Fiascoes"
  • Learning stress-relief and mindfulness techniques in a 45-minute yoga session, led by a certified yoga instructor
  • Enjoying action-packed team-building challenges

Each year the experience is different and geared specifically to the skill and learning abilities of a 4th, 5th, and 6th grade girl. Most girls attend all three grade levels to experience the full curriculum.

Support HGNA's Year-end Campaign


HGNA is proud to offer programs that guide families like yours as they navigate the profound physical, emotional, and social challenges of adolescence.  With this year's addition of HEROES, we've begun to expand our programs to bring our sons the same level of educational and skill-building programs, events, and resources we offer our daughters. We're excited to grow, but we can't do it alone! It is only through the generosity of individuals, businesses, and philanthropic organizations that the volunteers of HGNA are able to serve our community. 

Please consider contributing to HGNA during our year-end campaign so we can continue to partner with families and ensure each of our children develops a healthy self-concept and healthy relationships.

Help us as we Develop Programs for Boys

Tomorrow, as people around the world support important causes, please consider donating locally to HGNA and help us double our outreach as we work to create the same quality programs for boys as we have delivered for the past 12 years to the girls in our community.  

On this global day of giving, our goal is to raise $10,000 so we can address the challenges that BOTH girls AND boys face as they develop a healthy self-concept and healthy relationships.
