The YWOP PivotFWD is an engaging, interactive, strength based resource designed to equip teen girls with tools to make positive choices while instilling the confidence to do so. This resource has the flexibility and enough content to be delivered in six 2 ½ hour sessions as a weekly program, over a weekend as a girls workshop, a school semester or used in a girl club setting.
PivotFWD addresses the key areas that affect girls confidence: Self-Esteem & Self-Image, Family, Friendships, Dating Relationships, School Culture, and Mental Health.
PivotFWD involves interactive exercises, group discussion, activities, and reflective questions. This program is ideal for helping girls grow in confidence to lead, creating an inclusive affirming community, instilling female pride, and breaking down walls and barriers created by insecurities, girl drama, misconceptions and false expectations.
