Big Brothers Big Sisters, Nova Scotia- Greater Halifax
GoodLife Kids Foundation is supporting Big Brothers Big Sisters Go Girls! program in the Greater Halifax Area. Go Girls! is a program designed to address the physical activity, balanced eating and positive self-image needs of young women ages 12-14 based on a group mentoring model.

It provides girls with the information and support they need to make informed choices about healthy, active living during a particularly challenging stage of development. This program maintains sensitivity towards emotional, social and cultural issues.
The 2 hour sessions will be held once a week for 7 weeks and offered 4 times a year. This program will be offered in the Halifax Regional Municipality and surrounding areas including Dartmouth, Halifax, Sackville and Springfield. The Boys & Girls Club in Cole Harbour will also be one host location for Go Girls!
