Program Builds Strong Women Of Tomorrow

If you know a girl age 11 to 14 who needs an extra hand building her self-esteem, getting active, or healthy eating, there's a program that could be perfect for her.

Go Girls! is hosted by Big Brothers Big Sisters, and aims to help young girls face the tough issues by matching them with mentors and peers in a supportive environment. The program has been awarded an extra $5000 from the Goodlife Spin 4 Kids Contest.

Go Girls Co-ordinator Bliss Roberts tells CHSJ News they're going to put that to good use by starting a day camp this summer, where girls will get out both into nature and in the community.

 The program is currently running at schools and community centers throughout the city. Girls can sign up for the next Go Girls group which starts in September. For a link to more info click here
