The course is designed to meet the specific needs of each group of girls, in consultation with them, which makes it hard to tell you in advance exactly what will be covered. Generally we include: friendship, peer pressure, puberty, body image, managing moods, going to senior school, dreams for the future, mentors, and anything else that the girls wish to discuss. We celebrate each girl around the time of her birthday, highlighting her strengths and qualities.
I hope that each girl will feel that her group facilitator is another woman who is there for her as she grows up. The girls also develop a special relationship with one another which extends beyond our sessions together. Many girls don’t know anyone else when the group first meets but the intimacy and trust that develops between them has the potential to extend into lifelong friendships.
