The She Can Be Strong! program is a combination of physical activities, nutrition and healthy eating, stress management and building self-esteem. These areas encourage girls to take care of their bodies, minds and souls! Problem solving skills and conflict resolution will be incorporated throughout the experiences with an emphasis on avoiding dangerous situations. Emotional self-defence, including setting boundaries and the ability to say no, will be explored.
Physical self defense techniques may be taught by a qualified martial arts instructor if/when an appropriate space is available.
This program has three learning focuses. While the
program will touch on each one, facilitators will
adjust the emphasis depending on the girls’ needs
- Physical Activity
- Healthy Eating
- Boundary Setting
