Once our butterflies have emerged from their cocoons, they are ready to take their new-found confidence and skills to a deeper level, on the Butterflyette Programme.
Over twelve weeks, participants are challenged to create their own project or product idea to provide a solution to a personal or social problem in their area. This could be an issue involving the environment or personal safety, or loneliness and connectivity – wherever Butterflyettes think there is a need.
Through training and self-reflection, participants are enabled to create something which will benefit both them and their communities, so they can become a community ambassador, mentor and/or a social impact leader, and hopefully, be taken under the wing of another female business leader as a result.
The Butterflyette Programme focuses on empowering girls and young women in a different way, enabling them to learn and gain more confidence in:
Body language, speaking, listening and how to hold yourself
How to talk about yourself and others and dressing for an interview
Developing a passion or idea, such as making jewellery, beauty, design, fashion, blogging
Creating a storyboard
Bringing an idea to life through drawn, written or spoken presentation
What already exists? What do competitors offer? Why do people need this project, product or solution?
Create a prototype or example of the self-discovery project/item
We hope that once our Butterflyettes have left us, they are taken under another’s wings, to bring their ideas to life and ensure they continue to fly.
