Help your tween or young teen make informed decisions about living a healthy, active, balanced lifestyle.
Developed for girls aged 10 to 14, Go Girls! uses a mentor approach to provide girls with the information and support they need to make informed choices at this particularly challenging stage of development. This ten-week program focuses on three key components: food and nutrition, being active, and feeling good about ourselves. Go Girls! participants are paired in small groups with young female mentors who are passionate about leading healthy, active lifestyles. In each session the girls are given fun and exciting opportunities to be physically active, explore new foods, and reflect on their experiences. Go Girls! addresses key issues like body image, self esteem, bullying, media, drugs and alcohol.
