Go Girls! Group Mentoring

Healthy Bodies, Healthy Minds

Many of us were lucky enough to have had a mentor step into our lives during our formative years, at that time when we needed them most; a parent, a teacher, a relative. Whomever it was treated us with respect and in turn earned ours. They valued our ideas, included us, and encouraged us. They taught us that doing good is every bit as important as doing well. They gave us the courage to make tough decisions, the self-esteem to make smart choices, and the confidence to be true to ourselves.

Go Girls!

Healthy Bodies, Healthy Minds

Go Girls! is a group mentoring program for girls ages 8 - 14 (age requirement may vary depending on location of program) that focusses 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 seven mentoring sessions, held over an 8-week period, after school within school facilities, or at local community recreation centres. Each 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
  • Have mentors make a difference while having fun

This program is available in partnership with our agency and the City and Township of Langley at various community recreation centres.
