Program pushes girls to acheive their goals

Offered through Ladysmith Resources Centre

Young ladies ages 14 to 16 can boost their self esteem and girl power this August thanks to a free four-day workshop at the Ladysmith Resources Centre.

 

GO GIRL is a fun summer program centred around helping girls reach their short- and long-term goals before the new school year, said Lindsey Krish, Ladysmith Resources Centre youth worker.

 

“It’s about the power of girls working together, setting and achieving goals, teaching them boundaries and how to work in a group setting, bullying and bully prevention,” Krish said.

 

“It’s quite a popular program for the young girls.”

 

In addition to a number of fun activities including arts and crafts, participants will also get to be taken on a Ladysmith Harbour Tour.

 

GO GIRL is being run in conjunction with the Nanaimo Women’s Centre, who offers the program every year.

 

This is the first year for the LRCA, who held an initial Go Girl session in July for girls aged 10-13.

“It was pretty good, it was a group of girls that knew each other already and go to school together,” Krish said.

 

“We had someone come from community kitchens in Nanaimo to do a little talk about nutrition, healthy eating, and then they cooked with them.”

 

GO Girl runs Monday, August 8 to Thursday, August 11 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Lunch is provided.

For more information on the GO Girl program, contact Lindsey at the Ladysmith Resources Centre at 250-245-3079.
