North Coast teens get good start with girl smart

YEAR 11 girls at John Paul College learnt about their future last week when they were part of the first ever Girl Smart workshop.

The workshop, run by North Coast Youth Career Connections, was about informing young women about different paths for their future and giving them the information to be successful in their chosen path.

There were 12 guest at the half-day workshop - local women in the community with varying careers, who told their story and acted as 'mentors' for the girls throughout the session.

There was fun and laughter as the girls participated in a number of fun activities, such as creating appropriate interview outfits, learning about first impressions and how to budget. It was the first time such a program had been run by North Coast Youth Career Connections.
