What is Girls’ Net?
A six-week journey for girls equipping them for times of challenge and change.
This course is made up of six 1¼ hour sessions in a small group of same-age girls guided by a fully trained Girls’ Net Mentor. This course is currently held online for girls grouped by age (8-18 years).
How will the sessions support my daughter?
This is a restorative programme designed to age-appropriately provide:
- Mentoring for girls to see them safely through challenging times
- A safe space to talk while in the comfort of home
- Sharing healthy ways of coping
- Practising self-care
- Building resilience and confidence
- Supporting school and life transitions
- Belonging to a friendly, safe circle of same-age girls
Although the course will provide space for girls to share their thoughts and feelings, this is not a replacement for specialised group or individual therapy.
What do girls say they like about Girls’ Net?
“A chance to be with real girls who won’t judge or be mean, and to talk and discuss daily problems and learn new ways to think about stuff.” (age 14)
“I like it that what I say is kept private and I have a choice in everything.” (age 12)
“Chatting with other girls and getting to know them and sharing your feelings about the topics.” (age 13)
“Nice to see people outside of school + fun.” (age 11)
“My daughter loved Girl’s Net so much – I’d definitely recommend it.” (parent of 10-year-old)
“For the past 6 weeks it was something I enjoyed doing and felt safe doing it with girls who were all individually unique and kind. When we finished tonight’s session, I felt so loved and safe and accepted of who I was and nothing more, I stayed with that feeling for 5 minutes absorbing it and it was a feeling I want to go back to as many times as possible – and that is all thanks to you and the girls in Girls Net. ” (age 15)
Try it out first!
The first session is an introduction and a chance for girls to try it out, no pressure. Once they’ve met each other and their mentor and had a taste of Girls’ Net they can decide whether they’d like to join, committing to the remaining five sessions. Your Girls’ Net Mentor will give you details of the course including day, time and cost. Everyone is asked to agree to our online guidelines beforehand.
Parents are invited to meet their daughter’s Girls’ Net Mentor online, to hear about the course and ask questions a couple of weeks before the series starts.
