Healthy Bodies, Healthy Minds

Many of us were lucky enough to have had a mentor step into our lives during our formative years – at that time when we needed them most. A parent. A teacher. A relative. Whomever, it was someone who treated us with respect and in turn earned ours. Who valued our ideas, included us, and encouraged us. Who taught us that doing good is every bit as important as doing well. And who gave us the courage to make tough decisions, the self-esteem to make smart choices and the confidence to be true to ourselves.

Go Girls!

Healthy Bodies, Healthy Minds

Go Girls! is a group mentoring program for girls ages 10-14 that focuses on physical activity, balanced eating and self-esteem. The single, most important goal of the program is to positively shape the lives of young women and girls by helping them build a positive self-image – setting them on a path to reach their full potential in life.

The Go Girls! program consists of 9 mentoring sessions, after school within school facilities. Each session is 2.5 hours long. In each session the girls are given fun and exciting opportunities to be physically active, explore new foods, and reflect on their experiences. Through small group discussion, Go Girls! addresses key issues such as body image, media, bullying, drugs and alcohol, and self-esteem.

Sessions start in October and January each year for both Squamish and Whistler programs.
