OGAV launched the Girls Hangout sessions initiative in January 2021 as a way to connect with youth girls and have collaborative sessions where girls can learn important skills for their professional and everyday life.
Our volunteering team holds weekly meetings every Friday via zoom where the mentors come together and lead sessions discussing various important topics and creating a safe space for discussion. A broad range of topics has been covered in the sessions including health and nutrition, self-care, social-media use, goal-management, mental health and wellness, and many more!
While we are off for the summer, we hope to continue in the coming Fall. Some of the screenshots from session presentations are shown below.
