Being a teenage girl in the world today is a challenge. Attempts to retain an element of individuality are threatened on a daily basis by the media, celebrity culture, premature sexualisation, peer pressure and bullying, lack of positive, strong female role models, privacy invasion and misuse of the internet, ladette behaviour and increase in aggressive behaviour amongst girls, to name a few.
This backdrop is leading to a generation of teenage girls arriving at puberty with a full on identity crisis. Eating disorders, promiscuity and teen pregnancies, body dysmorphia, self-harming, binge-drinking and substance abuse, panic attacks and exam anxiety, are just some of the symptoms apparent in their behaviour.
Not surprisingly we now have a confused generation, disengaging from education and the world around them which leads to low aspirations, poor body image, fickle self esteem and a confused identity.
We create and deliver a range of early intervention programmes from 2 hours to 12 months in duration that do just that! We are also champions for teen girls and know our work makes a huge difference.
We hope you will join our movement and get involved as a volunteer, role model, mentor, coach, employer, fund raiser, ambassador, influencer, school or advocate.
Our girls are in the midst of a mental health crisis and they need us to show them a better way NOW!
