Five week online activity programmes for girls age 8-13 to become unstoppable leaders

The GFS Big Dreamers’ Club runs short programmes of online activities for girls aged 8-13. Each programme will be a crash course on a particular issue for girls and young women.

Big Dreamers’ Club: future leaders

This programme will run every Tuesday from 5-6pm for five weeks, beginning 25 May.

In our online sessions girls will be challenged to picture themselves as leaders. Each week we’ll ask new questions, build confidence and encourage the girls to explore new ideas.

Session one, 25 May: What makes a good leader? 

Our first session will look into the different styles of leadership and explore the skills and attributes required to become a great leader.

Session two, 1 June: Famous women leaders

This session will explore all famous women leaders both past and present helping the girls to find positive role models. 

Session three, 8 June: Teamwork makes the dream work

This session focuses on the importance of teamwork and the need for leaders to work collaboratively with others. We will also explore the benefits of diverse and inclusive teams.  

Session four, 15 June: Problem solving and communication

A session focusing on role-play, the girls will work together to find creative solutions to different problems. In this session the girls will apply their team-working skills gained from the previous session and explore the benefits of effective communication. 

Session five, 22 June: Leading the way forward 

Our final session will be bringing all our skills together from previous weeks and enabling girls to see themselves as future leaders.
