our groups

We currently run 6 groups per year (Fall/Winter & Spring) in three age groups:

12/13;    14-16;    17-21

Groups run after school weekly for 9-12 sessions.

The format is interactive and incorporates a check-in each day, a topic for the day and two or three activities to illustrate the topic such as art activities, journaling, role plays, and discussion (large and small groups).

The content of the groups’ sessions includes:

  • communication skills,
  • healthy relationships,
  • mental health,
  • substance misuse,
  • the role power in relationships,
  • gender stereotypes,
  • violence in relationships,
  • relational aggression and its connection to internalized oppression of girls and women,
  • substance use,
  • sexual health,
  • self-care,
  • media literacy
  • body image
