BEAM stands for Beautiful Empowerment and Me; It’s an interactive, fun, extra-curricular programme for girls aged 10-14. The programme is underpinned by well-being and designed to bring girls together to discuss and explore issues affecting them and their peers ie body image, peer pressure, unhealthy relationships…
BEAM inspires change; The girls gain skills and opportunities that build self-esteem, confidence, self-respect, develop a voice and leadership skills through Peer Mentoring. We encourage participants to develop their own campaigns which contribute to the changes they want to see in the community.
Our fully trained Ambassadors act as positive role models and trusted friends to their peers, providing guidance, wisdom, and insights while supporting the girls to become Beautifully, Empowered and loving the ‘Me’ they see.
