Description of Position
Go Girls! Healthy Bodies, Healthy Minds

Go Girls! is a group mentoring program for girls ages 11-14 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.

Orientation and training provided.
