Dannielle recently attended our CanTeen weekend, Girl Aloud, which is a program designed to meet the needs of young women living with cancer in NSW. Dannielle ran two of her workshops for the girls free of charge and the feedback has been startling. Not only were the sessions full of energy and enthusiasm, they were also delivering a vital message to the girls. The feedback that we received told us that the sessions really created a sense of camaraderie amongst the girls and they saw this as a huge opportunity to recognise their values as a group but also as individuals.
The weekend wouldn’t have been such a success without these workshops. They were the perfect springboard to take the program to another level and for us to talk honestly about the challenges of being women in 2009. The young people were engaged throughout the sessions and the gifts that Dannielle presented to the girls were fantastic. However, the greatest gift they received was time spent with Dannielle; she took the time to talk with everyone individually and enabled the girls to truly empower themselves.
Having worked with so many facilitators in 11 years in youth work, I feel that I have seen some great presenters and great workshops. But, being honest, I haven’t ever seen a group of young people so engaged over a three-hour period. Many thanks again to Enlighten Education for all they have done with these young women. The opportunity to have the time with you was the best decision we could have made for the wellbeing of our fantastic young people.
