Reach delivers 100% youth led workshops that develop the social and emotional wellbeing of young people. Our facilitators are armed with the kind of insight only another young person can truly understand.
Mirror is an in person 90-minute workshop targeted at students in years 9 and 10 designed to provide a space for female identifying young people to explore, challenge and question the expectations and ideas that exist in society regarding femininity and the gender binary. The workshop asks participants to reflect on the impact of stereotypes and the expectations placed on them by society, others and themselves as they go through in-depth facilitation by a team of female only Reach facilitators.
The Mirror workshop encourages young women to examine the constraints and constructs placed upon femininity and to understand the authentic self that lies beneath these. Creating a sense of unity as women and working towards rewriting the norm of what it means to be a woman. Navigating the fast paced, ever-changing world as a young female comes with many challenges, often young females go through life thinking that they are alone in their experiences. Mirror provides a space for participants to honestly share where they are at in life, and all the thoughts and emotions towards their experience as a female in contemporary society. Mirror empowers our young participants to understand their value and promote their sense of self-worth and live by their own choices.
