Go Girls! Summer Program – FREE

Big Brothers Big Sisters and Island Savings Youth Ambassadors have teamed up to offer a Go Girls program for girls ages 11-14 years that explores Healthy Bodies and Healthy Minds. The goal of the Go Girls program is to provide girls with information and support to make informed choices about active living, balanced eating and feeling good. The highly interactive program supports 4 key themes; physical activity, healthy eating, self-esteem building and communication skills. Throughout a condensed 4 week program, participants will engage in group activities, individual reflection, interactive games and discussions around key topics.

A group of 8-10 girls will be paired with two female mentors. The mentors are representatives from Island Savings Youth Ambassador program, who will facilitate the program. The program will consist of eight, 3 hour sessions. Each session will be fun-filled, active, and informative. The first session will include training around child safety information reviewed in the Strong from the Start program through Big Brothers Big Sisters.

Each Go Girls participant will require running shoes, water bottle and hat/sunscreen. Sessions will be held both indoors and outdoors so participants are required to be prepared for all weather.

As part of the program, participants will be asked to complete an evaluation form telling us about her experience with the program. This information could be used to make program improvements and determine impact.
