GFS groups are a fun place for girls and young women to develop the confidence and skills they need to reach their potential. The group is a safe space for the girls to explore new ideas and develop their understanding of supporting and accepting one another.
Our programme is led by the issues that are most important to girls and young women. Activities are tailored to the age of participants and designed to develop their confidence, self-esteem and resilience – and above all, be fun.
Our activities aim to be a fun way to engage girls with topics such as friendships and healthy relationships, the environment and their aspirations. We also encourage thought around issues such as discrimination, lack of equality in the workplace and everyday sexism.
A typical session will have opportunities for girls discuss their week and any plans for future sessions, then they’ll get stuck into one or two activities that follow the themes below, and end with reflection.
