How do we make choices and cultivate relationships that end in joy and honor rather than shame and regret?
As youth make choices that will affect the rest of their lives, what support are we offering them?

In girls' own words...
"You're never going to find a space or an energy like the space Emily and Quetzal create. Do it, I promise you'll love it."
"Do it! Trying doesn't hurt but if you don't, you're missing out! Changed my life!"
"Thank you so much for this weekend. I met so many different girls with the same problems as me. It's just good to know I'm not the only one dealing with these problems." - K.S.
"I really appreciated having the time to reflect on such a faceted subject, especially the solitary time. Also, it was such a gorgeous setting! But more importantly, I feel more secure in knowing what I want in a relationship, and the kind of guy who I want that relationship to be with. Asking for what I want is still difficult, but I think that's something that takes time to learn. Thank you so much for creating this space for me, my friends, and other girls - I hope as many girls as possible get to have this experience!" - K.W.
"I learned a lot about our culture and how to deal with that, being a woman in today's society. Thank you so much for creating this experience. I don't normally get to talk about things like this, so it was amazing to be able to talk openly and not feel judged. I met new girls (who are all amazing) and because of what you've created I got to hear and learn about other young girls' perspectives and experiences of all sorts. Thank you for that. I've taken away a lot of important things to remember that will help me in the future, and through the rest of my life." - G.W.
"I liked this retreat because I could feel comfortable with opening up and others could easily say anything they wanted to."
"Please do this! You will not regret it! It leaves you with so much life experience."
