MANAGING CHANGES AND CHALLENGES
Courses and workshops designed to assist girls aged
11 - 13 with their transition from childhood to adolescence.

GIRLS WHO CAN is an 8-week course for 10-14 year old girls,
(in separate age groups), 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.

* WE ARE CURRENTLY OFFERING 50% OFF ALL OUR COURSES FOR A PARENT WHO WOULD LIKE TO GET A GROUP OF 6 TO 10 CHILDREN TOGETHER AND HOST A GROUP AT THEIR HOME OR CHOSEN VENUE.
THE VENUE NEEDS TO BE A SUITABLE SPACE THAT IS BOTH PRIVATE AND BIG ENOUGH FOR THE GROUP TO SIT IN A CIRCLE ON THE FLOOR. PLEASE CONTACT US FOR MORE DETAILS.

Some of what the GIRLS WHO CAN course covers:

  • Introduction, getting to know one another and dealing with fears

  • Anxiety/worry

  • Healthy and unhealthy ways of releasing anger and sadness

  • Inclusion and exclusion/bullying

  • Protecting yourself and knowing the difference between safe and unsafe

  • Moving into adolescence: Changing moods and body image

  • Finding the star you are: self-esteem building

  • Reflection and community​

MOTHER AND DAUGHTER DAY: 

After the lessons with the girls, there will be an option to attend a workshop with mothers and daughters. The date will be set upfront and the workshop may consist of girls and mothers from different Girls Who Can groups.
Alternately one can book a private Mother and Daughter day for their daughter and friends. This will be a time of questions, of listening and seeing and of celebrating the soon to be entered world of adolescence in a creative way.

COST: R1200 per mother and daughter for the 4 hour workshop
