Creating shining stars with Girls Out Loud
Girls Out Loud is an award winning social enterprise founded in 2010 on a mission to raise the aspirations of teenage girls in the UK. We create and deliver early intervention programmes in schools and communities focussed on building self esteem, emotional resilience, a positive body image and confidence.
Alongside hosting motivational events and speed mentoring relays in schools with deliver 2 longer term interventions. The first programme STARDOM is a 12 week emotional intervention, targeting seriously vulnerable girls who are disconnecting from school and the second is our most popular intervention BIG SISTER, a 12 month mentoring programme for 13-15 year olds. This programme targets the girls that sit in the middle of the year and feel a little lost. They are not reaching their full potential, on the cusp of behaving badly and/or easily influenced by their peer group. We recruit and train women from all walks of life to be a Big Sister mentor to a girl for a year and the aim is to help her find her voice, her passion and her confidence.
All our programmes are successful and demand from schools is high. We are always looking to harness women to work with us as mentors, fund raisers and corporate champions. We know for sure we will never run out of girls to work with, women to inspire them and schools but we do have a permanent shortfall on funding our work.
