Feedback from teachers at participating schools speaks for itself:

‘So much transformation amongst the girls in the group!’

‘The SHE Leads High Program gave our girls the opportunity to explore issues and challenges to women, both socially and professionally, and provided them with a safe, respectful and varied environment to express thoughts, share ideas and learn more about being a woman today. The girls would buzz for days after a workshop and would be excited about when the next connection would be. It allowed us to promote leadership with our girls and let them know that they are valued members of our school community.’

‘SHE Leads High enriched the lives and learning of all of the participants from Findon  High School. Through interacting with a range of community members, led by Claire, the girls grew in confidence, increased their knowledge of themselves as individuals and as leaders. The experiences of SHE Leads empowered the young women involved and they are all excited about their futures.’
