Real girl power
This workshop explores the women’s movement and the history of feminism. Who have been our change makers? What does empowerment and the “sisterhood” really mean to us 21st-century girls?
Girls will be introduced to a variety of fashion styles and will be encouraged to define their own style. Girls will then discover practical, fun and affordable ways to achieve their selected fashion style. Customising, bargain buying and fashion ethics are all featured in this workshop. The real focus here is on using a medium the girls are comfortable with (fashion) to instigate important conversations about the labels we place on ourselves and each other – not just literally, but figuratively.
Be a dollar diva
Saving money, mobile phone plans, credit cards, business plans . . . all savvy girls need to know how to manage their finances. This workshop teaches girls how to be cash smart and how to avoid financial pitfalls.
Get it together
Managing time, prioritising, organising their space and their work, problem-solving, thinking creatively — these are all skills that help improve girls’ performance at school and in the workplace. This workshop focuses on helping girls develop these skills and use them to their advantage.
Stop I don't like it
Every girl is concerned about her personal safety. Setting personal boundaries, safe partying, handling inappropriate text messages, managing conflict and using the internet safely: these skills are all vital. This workshop focuses on what’s right and what’s not right and how to tell the difference.
The princess diaries
Girls will create their own journals in which they can reflect and reshape their futures . . . this workshops also allows for informal conversations about things that really matter to the girls and uses art as therapy. The finished journals are beautiful and powerful ‘take aways’ from our events. All materials are supplied.
Relaxation, visualisation techniques, massage and more. Learning how to manage stress effectively is essential for our modern lives. Relying on crutches like alcohol, drugs, cigarettes or other unhealthy behaviours is destructive and wasteful. In this workshop we encourage girls to seek balance in their lives and teach them some skills to achieve it. We also teach skills to help them cope with exam and assessment pressure to help enhance performance. These strategies are fun, affordable, and will fit into any girl’s hectic lifestyle.
Research tells us that friends are more important to teenagers than their parents or teachers. How do we make friends? Who should we make friends with? How should friendships be maintained? How do we decide if a friendship is helping or harming us? This workshop addresses these issues and equips the girls with the necessary skills to make safe, important decisions about their friendships.
