A youth-led group focused on improving the emotional and mental resilience of young women aged 12-16 years old.
The foundation for Conscious Girls is our award winning 'Stepping up and Stepping Out' programme. Topics include but not exclusive as we tailor not to the young people; personal boundaries, the role of consent, positive relationships, core values, , image and identity to name a few. Future workshops in 2020 will look at money literacy, domestic violence and entrepreneurial skills. Our current activities include physical activity, social action, sexual health, healthy cooking and self-care. The project is designed and shaped by the participants to ensure it meets their needs. Future projects include a self-development residential away, fundraising to sustain the group and the planning of a young women’s empowerment conference.
The programme facilitates a change process which offers the opportunity in a safe and non-judgemental environment to explore under the surface what is really going on and helps them towards achieving a more fulfilling and positive future. By openly exploring issues which affect them and providing the relevant support or signposting we believe they will make better life choices. The young women will gain a better understanding of who they are and what they stand for and their values.
Our sessions commence again weekly on a Wednesday from January 15th 2020, at The Chestnut Centre, 2a Chestnut Street, Huddersfield, HD2 1HJ
