Go Girls! Healthy Bodies, Healthy Minds” is a group mentoring program that promotes positive self-esteem, confidence, friendships, active living, and much more. This program is intended for students in grades 4-7 and is open to female, female-identifying, transgender, non-binary, gender fluid, and two spirited individuals.

 

Go Girls incorporates fun, educational games and activities to stimulate relationship-building as well as self-reflection and group discussions about healthy living and issues that pre-teens face. Sessions usually have three components: (1) physical activity, (2) snack break, (3) activities related to feeling good about yourself
