What's Included

friendship tools

During the session, girls learn the importance of friendships, anti-bullying and relationships. We provide girls the tools to express themselves with confidence and from a place of love and inclusion instead of competition.


Mentorship is an effective way to help tweens realize their potential and emerge as empowered role models and future community leaders. Our mentors are carefully chosen for their ability to connect and their commitment to empowering young girls in their community.

fun physical activity

At Sole Girls, we get active by participating in empowering running games that make physical activity fun and inclusive. During the session, girls physically and mentally prepare to run a 5km fun run with their peers and MentHERs.

problem-solving skills

Often when we encounter a problem, we feel frustrated or angry. Girls learn to identify their feelings and what caused them to feel that way. We provide girls the tools to consider and evaluate possible solutions and put the solutions into action.

confidence building

​Our programs are designed to help girls release their inner awesome and feel confident in who they are. Activities help girls recognize their uniqueness, special strengths and what they love about themselves.

awards and recognition

During the session, girls are encouraged to support each other and give out awards to their peers for acts of kindness, determination, and courage. Girls get the opportunity to make others feel good and recognition for their outstanding efforts and achievements.

Program Details


Our programs include three terms: Term 1: Self, Term 2: Friendships and Term 3: Leadership. Each term builds on the last.


Our programs run after school and on weekends. Program time is depending on the program location.


Our sessions run 8 to 9 weeks. Program start date depends on location. Generally, we run 3 Weekly Sessions per location per year.

5km Fun Run
