This Girl Can - Teachers

YST This Girl Can… Create Change!
This is a new campaign for schools. It is for all girls aged 11-18 years-old.

This Girl Can… Create Change! campaign recognises that friends are the greatest influence on adolescent girls and that positive encouragement and support from their peers is the most effective way to get girls active – at school and at home. It supports girls to lead campaigns, activities, insight and change in their own school. By taking ownership of the campaign, and by creating and promoting messages that influence their peers, girls can help each other to get active, in ways that are right for them. See our latest blog here.

Funded by Sport England, we’ve created this resource to help you and girls create change in your school. A hard copy of the resource has been sent to each secondary school in England but is also available here. The resource includes:

  • A teacher guide
  • Posters
  • Five cards to support girls develop and lead a This Girl Can campaign in school - including specific ideas of what they can do to get girls active
  • Five short video tutorials to support girls with their campaign.

Girls will see this page when they visit the YST website:

The This Girl Can... Create Change! schools resource is part of the national This Girl Can campaign which supports women and girls to get active. It promotes the message that there’s no right way to get active. If it gets your heart rate up, it counts! It inspires women and girls to find what’s right for them.
