We understand that parents and friends have a vital and privileged role in the development of girls’ self-awareness, identity and ability to cope with change and difficulties. We would really like to partner with you to achieve this.
Teenage girls are increasingly being discontent and detached from life. In a culture that dictates how they should look, act, and live in order to be enough, many have lost their true sense of worth and identity.
Esteem Designz aims to be a solution to the ever-increasing issues and confronting pressures girls are facing, such as constant comparison, deceiving messages of perfectionism through the media, peer pressure, unrealistic expectations, and more!
A comprehensive and targeted resource designed to champion girls (pre-teens to young adults) to know and be confident in their REAL identity and value, as well as see and encourage the value of others. Girls are equipped with key skills and tools to flourish in life – all through CREATIVITY.
Esteem Designz Program is based on fun, interactive and meaningful Design Projects and activities to equip and empower girls.
The Design Projects are expressive and practical tools / coping strategies that the girls can continue to use throughout life.
Esteem Designz can be used within small-groups, mentoring, or given as an empowering gift.
As the girls create, you can go really deep with them as their focus is on creating and having fun, so they do not feel pressured or confronted, allowing you to address any issues you know they are currently facing. A very safe, comfortable, deep and meaningful space is created for the girls to openly share and have enduring and memorable breakthroughs.
The girls learn from themselves and in the group setting, each other, through the process of creating, the tools they are making, and the discussions and activities they engage in. It is experiential discovery based learning, using a strengths-based approach to help the girls learn and practice lasting skills and tools.
Each girl receives a beautifully packaged kit; ready to go and easy to use – which means all the work is done for you. And if you would like to run a program, the Facilitator’s Resource Manual is easy to use and flexible to meet your group needs.
Esteem Designz is not simply a self-esteem program for girls, but engages them in grow-producing, practical actives, empowering them to create their own tools and understandings, helping them endure and thrive through life’s challenges.
As the girls create the 5 Design Projects/tools and engage in group discussions, they:
- Create authenticity and confidence in who they really are
- Celebrate differences instead of comparing
- Discover their unique characteristics
- Reinforce resilience
- Develop a positive sense of self and self-management
- Practice strategies to overcome challenges and change
- Form positive and respectful relationships
- Grow in social and emotional skills
- Achieve goals that boost self-confidence and worth
- Promote unity and leadership
- Cultivate critical skills in choice making, communication, encouragement & problem solving
- It is also a fantastic resource to help girls transition into new experiences and out of others
- Helping girls respect and engage positively with themselves, those around them, and their communities
Esteem Designz takes the work out of programing for you, so you can focus on what really matters investing in, and making lasting impacts in the lives of the girls you work with.
Esteem Designz Program provides a platform to work through different issues and pressures teen girls face, in a gentle, non-confronting, and fun environment.
Esteem Designz also provides additional resources that specifically address some of these key issues that teen girls are facing, providing practical activities and tools to help them better understand and overcome these debilitating issues. These can complement Esteem Designz Program, giving further insight and freedom. They can also be used as separate resources.
Anyone can run a group. Simply the manual + kits for the girls. Then run the program in your local schools, community organisations, or at home with your daughter/niece/granddaughter/cousin, just you and her or with her friends too.
The Girl’s Resource Kits can be a gorgeous and meaningful gift; for girls to complete on their own or with a special friend (parent, mentor, sibling, friend).
Why not invest in this life-affirming gift for the next birthday, Christmas or just because you love them!
Esteem Designz Program covers 5 different carefully focused stages, each designed to stimulate, support and provide tools for life. In a program structure, these can be taught over a period of five to ten weeks, spread out over terms, or on camps/days. Esteem Designz Program is flexible to meet the needs of each group.
Participating in Esteem Designz Program is a joyful, uplifting and transforming experience.
