The chaplain from the same school said he’s noticed a visible change in this girl as well as one other girl who had completed SHINE last term. He said they both appear more confident, cheerful and one of them also decided to seek further one-on-one counseling.
The purpose of SHINEgirl is to teach young women about their worth, strength and purpose during a 7-9 week, in school program. It combines lecture type teaching, small group discussions as well as practical tips/discussions.
I’ll start as the main facilitator for SHINEgirl at another high school starting later this month. During that time, I’ll write a weekly update about what I’ve experienced during my preparations as well as during the in-class times. I hope you’ll be encouraged by what happens.
