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.


Starting in April 2020: Your child will receive a free space on one of our courses if you are able to host a course at your home and get a group of 8 children together.

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


After the lessons with the girls, an optional workshop with mothers and daughters will follow on the weekend after the course.  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.
