The main objective of this program is to help girls between the ages of 7 and 12 develop their self-esteem by providing activities and discussions on topics dictated by their interests.
The Fantastic Girls program focuses on building self-esteem – through a variety of activities – and on values such as sharing, understanding, learning and creativity. The discussion and sharing sessions focus on topics such as identity, communication and assertiveness, body image and health, and the well-being of young girls. A mentoring program is also integrated into Fantastic Girls.
The IGLF will use the guide developed by the Alberta Mentorship Initiative and the Canadian Women’s Foundation as a resource to guide the group.
