PREPARING FOR ADOLESCENCE

GIRLS WHO CAN is an 8-week course for 11-13 year old girls, designed to assist them with the physical, emotional and relationship changes they will experience during adolescence. Using creativity, discussion and role play we teach the girls helpful techniques to ease them in stressful times as well as assist them through the life changes they are all experiencing now.
