Update Autumn 2018
Girls on Board was launched at the ISA Annual Conference in May 2017 and since then many schools of all types have either adopted the approach or have shown serious interest in doing so.
Around 50 schools and nearly 500 hundred Girls on Board Champions are now using the Girls on Board approach to help thousands of girls navigate the choppy waters of friendship problems.
There are 39 schools who hold the Girls on Board licence which gives them access to an increasing list of resources. Added to that list in the last few weeks are a PowerPoint for Session One and a fully comprehensive guide and script for Session One.
The Koko Story
I recently met Meg Cannon of thekokostory.com . Meg is a truly inspirational woman who makes films aimed at empowering girls across the UK. In particular I would love you to give 5 minutes to watch this: https://youtu.be/1zx11-9RU2U
I can promise you that you won’t regret it and you will start to access an incredible library of short films that will inspire and energise the girls in your schools.
