The Butterfly Project

Aimed at young women and girls, The Butterfly Project is a six-week programme of activities designed to increase confidence, raise aspirations, and develop a sense of community.

There are lots of reasons why girls may benefit from becoming a Butterfly. It could be that they are from an area of deprivation or a marginalised background, or they could be experiencing anxiety, self-confidence issues or just need some extra support.

The Butterfly Project covers many topics which affect girls and young women, including:

Identity

Self-esteem

Health & Wellbeing

Relationships
