Jessica Shaw

Accredited Girls Journeying Together Facilitator

Town: Winchester, UK
Girls Journeying Together groups: Winchester

My name is Jess, I have three daughters and I am one of three daughters.  I am passionate about the work of Rites for Girls.  I believe every girl has the right to experience a safe and nurturing transition to womanhood.  Through girls journeying together groups, girls and their mothers will go on a journey which will equip the girls with a firm foundation from which they will be able to navigate the years ahead of them.  They will feel empowered to make decisions that are right for them, as they begin a journey towards discovery and acceptance of themselves.  Ready to face a world of conflicting messages telling them who they should be.

Before I started a family I worked as a corporate fundraiser for a deaf charity and a young persons homeless charity.  I then became a secondary school history teacher.  I decided not to return to teaching after I had my first daughter.  When the opportunity to become a girls journeying together facilitator came up, I jumped at the chance.  I look forward to taking the journey with you.
