STARDOM PROGRAMME

STARDOM is an intervention programme for girls who are seriously derailing. It is frame-breaking, run by highly qualified coaches using an array of personal development and transformation tools including Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) and Time Line Therapy™. These tools are used to shift mind-sets, zap limiting beliefs, reframe past experiences, uncover identity issues, break limiting family patterns and encourage the girls to think big via visualisation and motivational strategies.

ROLE MODEL RELAY

Role Model Relay is a fast paced , high energy 2 hour speed mentoring event introducing the girls to a diverse range of careers as they get to listen and question at least 25 awesome women from all walks of life. This is the best careers lesson ever! Find out more.

BIG SISTER

Quite often teenage girls simply need someone to talk to and guide them through the challenges of growing up. Career choices, boyfriends/girlfriends, parents, peer pressure to conform and remaining true to self are just some of the life issues young girls may struggle with and having a BIG SISTER, a trusted guide, someone who does not judge and believes in you unconditionally; someone who is your biggest fan and encourages you to take risks and put your hand up; someone who has been there, done that and got the T-shirt.  This awesome role model can and does make all the difference. Find out more here.

Big Sister is an outstanding programme that allows girls to develop friendships and strong relationships with their peers and the role model Big Sisters who support them on their journey.

SUPER 7 WORKSHOPS

In 2018 we noticed some reoccurring themes appearing in our work with teen girls that matched the enquiries we were getting from school teachers so we decided to create a series of workshops called ‘SUPER 7’ focussed on these key trends including social media, respect, friendships, body confidence and more.  Each workshop is a dedicated 2 hour interactive session for girls in Year 7, 8 or 9.

Each workshop can cater for up to 30 girls and can be run multiple times a day.

The cost includes one professional workshop facilitator, 2 if more than 15 participants, a takeaway workbook and all other resources. Find out more here.

You can keep up to date with the latest news from our Big Sister Team via their blog ‘Sister Talk’.

All our programmes focus on:

  • Personal Identity – helping girls get a sense of self, who they are and what they stand for, finding their voice, recognising their greatness.
  • Introducing them to powerful role models in the media and in their community, with a view to them becoming role models for other girls.
  • Encouraging them to recognise and embrace enterprise as a career option now and in their future.
  • Shifting the focus away from external body image and the unrealistic media hype of looking perfect and helping them re-align their self image.
  • Improve confidence, self esteem, self respect and emotional resilience.

We are passionate about

Supporting mindfulness and self-care.  Helping girls recognise and take responsibility fo their own mental, emotional and physical well-being.

Helping girls manage an array of relationships with teachers, partners, parents, siblings, friends and peers.

Helping girls understand all choices have consequences and they have a part to play in both.
