Go Girls!

The first session of a seven-week long group mentoring program has wrapped up

Here’s Coach Boby Wagner with Jasmine Strain

It was the last session of the first Go Girls! program, a seven-week long group mentoring program for girls 12-14 years old, organized by Terrace and District Community Services Big Brothers Big Sisters of Terrace, last Monday, Dec. 16.

The program focusses on physical activity, healthy eating, self-esteem and communication skills.

“Finding physical activity in every day life,” said coach and mentor Boby Wagner, who met with Strain and three other students from Skeena and Veritas every week.

The girls learned basic stretches, skipped rope, worked on spatial awareness (sometimes by playing catch with rubber chickens, and talked about avoiding peer pressure.

There will be more groups in January, as well as the first session of Game On, which is similar to Go Girls! but for boys.
