Our Mission: At Girls Place, we empower girls to grow courageous, strong and self sufficient. We inspire our girls to celebrate themselves—their minds, their hearts, and their physical well being.
To me, RESPECT means…to not say bad things to people and don’t hurt their feelings.

Favorite thing about GP: it’s fun because we do a lot of fun things and sometimes we paint our hands and it tickles.
What respects means to me is a power word that we use at girls place. It means to be respectful and to be positive to others. Also when you have a positive audittude. When you show respect you are basicly giving your heart and being your best. All these ways make you show respect.
-Romiya, 4th Grade
Respect means a lot to me in a lot of ways. It means the world to be cause if I show respect I expect to get respect back. Respect means that you have to show respect to get it back. It means everything to me. I love respect and it also means a lot to me because it’s a part of my life and I apply it to my everyday life.
