Connect is a student led volunteer project that works with girls at secondary school. We run our project with schools in the local community, aiming to inspire confidence in girls. We run a six to eight week programme with different interactive sessions that we deliver directly in the schools alongside the students academic curiculim. The sessions and activites begin with a focus on boosting self-esteem and increasing confidence. Girls are also split into small mentor groups of about 3-4 girls per mentor, where their mentor facilitates their development in the areas they would like to work on. The girls spend the programme working on a project they would like to showcase in the final week, this could be anything from showing their talents, doing a speech, or even creating a horror movie! The aim is to empower young women, and inspire them to believe that anything is possible.
