MPower Girls encourages students to talk about what it means to be a girl, what it means to be a good friend, what issues can arise between individuals and groups and how this affects them. Girls work together to discuss and resolve issues within their groups, through visual references, imaginative tools, and role play. This encourages deeper discussions and provides a greater understanding of the learning outcomes.
The purpose of the program is to:
- Better understand different relationships between female students and practice new ways of relating to one another.
- Develop confidence in the students so they are able to express feelings openly and honestly.
- Explore feelings in a personal and social context.
- Develop and practice different forms of communication.
