Hey Girl… – Youth Mentorship Program

Hey Girl is a referral based group mentorship program for youth who identify as female ages 14-18 years. The 8 week program runs weekly for 2 hours. The program allows female youth to explore and develop their identity through a series of focused areas such as: Self Identity, Emotional Health & Wellbeing, Body Image, Relationships etc. with an overarching theme of “Empowerment”.

The implementation of the weekly themes will include a blend of:

  • Expressive Art
  • Multi-media platforms
  • Group Dialogues
  • Group & Individual Activities
  • Guest Speakers

Females will explore the concept of feminine energy related to the body and mind connections and the associated challenges with being a young adolescent female. Hey Girl promotes females to celebrate their true selves by empowering them in a supportive, safe and creative way. The program goal is to support adolescent females in developing a healthy sense of self-worth, respect and purpose.

Females who participate in Hey Girl! will be able to make strong connections in 4 key ways:

  1. Mentors: Females will have access to caring, healthy supportive female relationships with mentors and staff, which will allow them engage in shared experiences and connections.
  2. Peers: Females will build strong bonds and increase self-esteem with their female peers, while improving their self-confidence to share their experiences in a safe and supportive environment.
  3. Resources: Females will be equipped with tools and a variety of resources and supports to help them make life informed choices.
  4.  Networking: Females will build skills and be empowered to discover they are powerful individuals and become leaders in their lives and their community while growing socially and emotionally.
