Girls on Board
An approach to help girls between the ages of 7 and 18 navigate the often troubled waters of friendship problems.
Girls on Board is an approach which helps girls, their parents and their teachers to understand the complexities and dynamics of girl friendships. The language, methods and ideas empower girls to solve their own friendship problems and recognises that they are usually the only ones who can. By empowering girls to find their own solutions, parents need worry less, schools can focus more on the curriculum and the girls learn more effectively – because they are happier.
How it is used
The Girls on Board programme is a pro-active approach, which delivers sessions that bring girls together to explore key principles around friendship dynamics and challenges.
Through these sessions, girls work together to understand that they all feel this way. They explore group dynamics, different personality types and behaviours and how to manage parent reactions.
Girls on Board enables girls to resolve issues more effectively and aims to minimise the impact of conflict when it does arise, by encouraging open, honest and effective communication.
