A series of weekly workshops designed to up-skill teenage girls and their mothers for the changes adolescence brings wrapped up in Busselton last week.

Last week, 47 girls and women came together to celebrate the end of the inaugural Girls to Women Workshop pilot program, which is dedicated to educating, empowering and honouring girls journeying into womanhood and up-skilling mothers to grow with their daughters during this time of change.

The program focuses on providing information, skills and strategies to cope with the dynamic mental, social and physical changes that both mothers and daughters experience.

Creator of the program Andrea Nerva said it was a “joy” to see the shift in the girls and the relief in the mothers who were now prepared for the changes.

Girls to Women workshops have separate sessions for 11-14 and 15-19yr old girls as well as for mothers of teens. To find out morevisit the Girls to Women Workshops Facebook page.
