Go Girls! is a group mentoring program for girls ages 8 - 12 that focusses 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 seven mentoring sessions, held over a 7 - 10 week period, after school within school facilities. Each 1.5 - 2 hour-long session is loosely structured around four themes: physical activity, healthy eating, self-esteem, and communication skills.

The program strives to do the following:

  • Create appreciation for the benefits of an active, healthy lifestyle
  • Build understanding of what constitutes healthy eating habits and the risks associated with eating disorders
  • Promote the importance of positive mental activity and regular physical exercise
  • Encourage awareness of core values, personal interests, strengths and attributes
  • Support the development of leadership and life skills
  • Offer guidance in establishing and maintaining friendships
  • Have mentors make a difference while having fun
