Go Girls! Healthy Bodies, Healthy Minds!
Go Girls! is a group mentoring program for girls ages 12 to 14 that focuses on physical activity, balanced eating and self-esteem. The single, most important goal of the program is to positively shape the lives of young women and girls by helping them build a positive self-image – setting them on a path to reach their full potential in life.
The Go Girls! program consists of seven mentoring sessions, held over a 7 to 10 week period, within school facilities. Each 1.5 to 2 hour-long session is loosely structured around four themes: physical activity, healthy eating, self-esteem and communication skills.

Game On! includes seven 75 minute core sessions. There are also four extension modules that capture potential issues and topics specific to various locales and the interests of the Mentors and participants.
