In contrast to the many teen education programs which patronise or police teen girls, Enlighten Education’s programs are strikingly different in that they seek to both recognise and further enhance the strengths of young women. By equipping them with practical skills delivered through a framework of empathy, care, compassion and joy Enlighten provides girls with an event that really resonates with them. This program shows that when you treat young people with dignity and respect by acknowledging the competencies and experiences they bring to discussions, truly great things can be achieved.
