Go Girls Program

What is Go Girls

Go Girls! is a group mentoring program for girls ages 12-14 that focuses on physical activity, balanced eating and self-esteem. The single, most important goal of the program is to positively shape the lives of young women and girls by helping them build a positive self-image – setting them on a path to reach their full potential in life.

The Go Girls! program consists of 7 mentoring sessions, held over a 7-10 week period, within school facilities. Each 1.5-2 hour-long session is loosely structured around four themes: physical activity, healthy eating, self-esteem, and communication skills.

The program strives to do the following:

  • create appreciation for the benefits of an active, healthy lifestyle
  • build understanding of what constitutes healthy eating habits and the risks associated with eating disorders
  • promote the importance of positive mental activity and regular physical exercise
  • encourage awareness of core values, personal interests, strengths and attributes
  • support the development of leadership and life skills
  • offer guidance in establishing and maintaining friendships
  • and above all, make a difference.
