Some Troy Howard girls and women got together after school in June 1997 for a neat art project called "Postcards From Me" led by the late Jamien Morehouse. It was sort of a trial run to see if people would enjoy getting together and experiencing something new. Well, it worked! And thus the Girl-to-Girl program began. Each month since then, something special and different has been offered to girls from Troy Howard, and those home-schooled in the Belfast area, in this after-school mentoring program.

Activities have included sports such as belly dancing, yoga, and race walking, making clay masks, pumpkin carving, theatre workshops, and even a trip to the Bangor Children's Museum. One year's group created a Girl Power bear for the 2nd Annual Belfast Bear Fest!
