Girls

As a girl you are certain to face a whole range of challenges, the greatest of which may be making it through your adolescent years with your self-esteem in tact.  In addition, it is essential that you develop a sense of who you are and who you desire to be in the world as well as to have a 'voice' you feel confident in and are capable of using in a variety of forms and forums.

Some of the challenges girls face growing up are listed below.  We have linked to resources to help guide and assist you to stand up for your core values, to understand better what you are going through and learn how to cope with difficult situations, to be healed from hurts, to prepare yourself for womanhood and adulthood and to be confident and happy.

Friendship Works is a charity offering mentoring support to help children and young people who are having problems growing up in their home and social environment. The service is completely free of charge and is funded entirely through voluntary contributions.

Their vision is of a future where all children in England have the mentoring support they need to access vital opportunities and build friendships in order to get more out of childhood, explore their potential, see what life has to offer and lead a fulfilling adult life.
