End of the year: The girls group is not open anymore. Please contact Lana to join the session next september.
The girls group is a new project developed by the YMCA to offer an alternative place to be for teenage girls on nights.
With our sessions, we work with girls ages 13-19 in a safe, fun and friendly environment, whilst informally raising awareness and educating the girls on issues typically associated with young girls in today’s society.
The girls will get involved in a planned activity, most of which they suggest. So far we’ve had a Mocktail making night, dominoes and DVD night, and one evening we made trinket boxes.
Girls will be encouraged to work towards accreditations, and possibly even become mentors to the younger or newest members of the group and we will address issues such as body image, self esteem, healthy relationships and internet safety.
In the top of that, our youth workers attend the youth club of Castle Hill every Tuesday from 6.30pm to 8.45pm to provide activities and support for girls.
