Teaching Women Confidence, Assertiveness and Safety


“My daughter attended your class last night & came home so excited. She told me all about the class & how much she learned from you. She will be applying what she learned at school to even friends that can be not so nice. On the car ride home she gave me all sorts of examples how to handle situations when girls are being mean. She discussed body language, how to verbalize firmly & what to say. It was amazing! The lessons you taught her are invaluable. Thank you for a wonderful class. She thoroughly enjoyed it!” Suzanne Sterling (mom of 11 yr old)

“Kurukula is fantastic! I can’t explain the confidence it gave my two daughters. Both older teenagers going off to college, but facing the dating scene still in high school. When can you say “No”? ALWAYS! Kurukula gave them the tools not only to read different scenarios, but gain confidence and the skills for self-defense. Becoming self-sufficient and believing in yourself while staying safe! This class is so worth it!”
Tracy Wiley (parent of teen girls)

“Kurukula is a great program to empower girls, helping them to avoid getting into dangerous situations and how to say a strong "No" when needed and a lot more!" Kate Mackinnon, PT, CST-D

"I’ve gotten a lot of great feedback from the girls- they really love your class!”
