Girls Self esteem Information

In today’s society, 6 out of 10 girls are concerned with the way they look and as a result will opt out of participating fully in day-to-day activities such as swimming, visiting the doctors and going to school. Moreover, 19% of teenage girls are overweight but 67% think they need to lose weight. Low self-esteem can cause young people to become excluded and disconnected from society, surrender their individuality and fail to recognise their full potential. 

As a result, P.H.O.E.B.E delivers self-esteem workshops every week in local schools across the Ipswich area in order to address the issue of low self-esteem and promote body confidence. 

The workshops are aimed at all young girls, aged 9 – 19 and encourage the girls to develop positive self-esteem through engaging them in a range of different activities which are practical, interactive and engaging.
