Just For Girls is a program of both self development and teambuilding. Held both indoors and outdoors, activities are designed to develop critical thinking and problem solving skills through fun activities. Girls work together learning valuable skills while having laughing and enjoying the experience. Effective communication is learned as participants are encouraged to use their voice to both ask for what they need and share their strengths with others.
Teen and pre- teen girls are vulnerable in so many ways. They face difficult situations at home, school and out in their community. It seems that every time I turn on the news- another girl is in trouble or worse. It really has started many of us thinking about how to strengthen this generation of young woman. As we talked about it- we came up with a two things that help a girl in a difficult time.
1- Using her voice.
Speaking or yelling for help can make a difference in a bad situation. Some girls find this the hardest thing to do when afraid or threatened. Smaller stresses from school or friends can get worse when a girl stays silent.
2- Critical Thinking- Problem solving in creative ways
Being able to make choices and work through problems can create the path out of trouble or prevent it from happening at all. Evaluating different options while thinking in clever and creative ways has helped save many in tight spots.
Hands on activity is one of the best ways to learn and the challenge course is a great place for it! These two skills are developed by design through many of our programs already. To address the needs of Girls – we have created sessions just for them. Based on the abilities of each group- we custom design activities that will help them grow. Whether your group is shy and quiet or loud and active- they will interact in new ways. Just let us know if other dynamics need focus as well.
Any group of girls- from sports teams to family or neighborhood groups- will benefit from developing problem solving skills and using their voice ! Groups size from 5 to 25. Through years of experienced based learning sessions- Team COA has witnessed timid girls grow into Strong Girls! Contact us to enroll your group and watch what they can accomplish!
Designed to be a *multi-day program, activity and reflection are an integral part of the learning process.Girls work through challenges during half day sessions held during the day, after school or weekends. After each activity, facilitator guided discussion assists in uncovering the deeper meaning. *Single sessions and self-guided follow up are available for groups unable to commit to multi-day.
