Project Details

Through our Rise Together program we bring a network of teachers together to teach them and train them around social issues that impact our young women across Birmingham and the wider UK.

Our 'teach the teacher' sessions include training on Self Esteem, Healthy Relationships, Domestic Violence, CSE, Forced Marriage and Body Image. The teachers then deliver our program within schools for cohorts of up to 25 girls between 11-18 years old. Once the girls graduate our program, they have the opportunity to become young ambassadors of Rising Girl and support more young women across Birmingham, and within our schools, and leading charities such as Barnardos.

Our Rise Together Program helps girls aged 11-18 in disadvantaged areas of the UK to rise. Many of the girls we work with have limited choices that can lead to forced marriage, honour based violence ,exploitation and a lack of self-esteem, prohibiting them from achieving their dreams.
