Do you enjoy working with young people? Would you like to help young girls learn to embrace active living, balanced eating and a positive body image?
Big Sisters of BC Lower Mainland is currently looking for volunteer mentors ages 19-25 for its Go Girls! Group Mentoring Program, taking place in Vancouver, Burnaby and Coquitlam Schools. This video below gives some insight into this incredibly valuable program.
Go Girls! takes place over a two month period and encourages physical activity participation, healthy eating choices, and the development of a positive self-image among girls ages 11-14. Two mentors co-facilitate the program for a group of 8-10 participants and the sessions are two hours long, held after school in select Burnaby, Coquitlam, and Vancouver middle schools. Each session is structured around themes of physical activity, healthy eating, self-esteem, and communication skills.
The most important goal of the program is to positively shape the lives of girls by helping them build a positive self-image – setting them on a path to reach their full potential.
