Go Girls! Program Volunteer

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Saint John
Children & Youth

Adult female volunteers are needed in order to run this group program. Go Girls! allows two women to work together to mentor a small group of young girls (ages 9-14) and teach them the importance of healthy relationships, self-care and boundaries. Volunteers and mentees take part in various activities supported by a program curriculum. Each session is about 45 minutes long, with groups meeting weekly or bi-weekly for 3-4 months. The curriculum is loosely structured around four themes: physical activity, healthy eating, self-esteem, and communication skills, with lots of room to contribute your own creativity and life lessons.
