Description

A mentoring program for girls, ages 12 -14 (grades 6-8), that promotes active living, balanced eating, and feeling good. Run by two trained volunteers, the program uses a mentor approach to provide girls with the information and support they need to make informed choices, while maintaining sensitivity towards emotional, social and cultural issues. The program runs for 8 weeks ( one session/week). Each session provides an opportunity for the girls to participate in fun, educational games and activities that encourage mentor/participant relationship- building as well as self-reflection and group discussions about what is important to them.
