Each new year brings new challenges so we looked at common issues young girls face. Workshop sessions were from 9:45am – 12:45pm for girls aged between 13-17 years old.

The full addresses for the above locations are:

Marsh Farm Futures, Futures House, The Moakes, Luton LU3 3QB

Our personal development sessions focused on key issues to prepare for the academic year ahead such as; confidence, motivation, resilience, how to deal with problems and values and beliefs. Thanks to those who joined us and made the sessions successful.
