Play On! (Pre-Teen Girls Program)

Play On_final

The Play On! program (formerly known as Pre-Teen Girls) is unique to BBBSG, providing the same services as our Go Girls! program, but instead directing it towards girls in grades 5 and 6.

The program focuses on encouraging and enabling girls in grades 5 and 6 to choose a healthy, active lifestyle. There are three pillars to the program: being active, balanced eating, and mental wellness.

The girls learn the benefits of being active and are also introduced to a variety of age-appropriate ways they can incorporate daily activity into their lives. They also learn about balanced nutrition and how to make healthy food choices. Finally, mental health is discussed as an important component of general wellness. The girls are introduced to the impact of various social pressures, such as media and peer pressure, and they learn how to combat these pressures and made healthy decisions.
