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.
PLEASE SEE OUR 2022 CALENDAR BELOW FOR COURSE DATES
* 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
Healthy and unhealthy ways of releasing anger and sadness
Inclusion and exclusion/bullying
Protecting yourself and knowing the difference between safe and unsafe

Finding the star you are: self-esteem building
Reflection and community
