PREPARING FOR ADOLESCENCE
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 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.
Some of what the course covers:
Introduction, getting to know one another and dealing with fears
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
