The Enthusiasm Trust recently held two afternoon girls-only workshops offering nail painting, pamper sessions and beauty makeovers. The sessions also provided a safe environment in which the girls could talk confidentially about sensitive topics.
The aim of these workshops was to create an opportunity for young people to establish new friends, increase their confidence and develop their self-esteem.
“By delivering the girls only afternoon workshops we have been able to discuss a variety of topics with the young people involved. We have offered advice around issues such as health, hygiene and run team building activities,” said Marc Stevens, Youth Services Manager at Enthusiasm.
“New friendships were formed during these sessions and young people who had previously only engaged on a one-to-one basis are now regularly attending some of the other youth provisions we deliver.”
