Hello From Ophelia’s Voice! By

Hello from Ophelia’s Voice!

My name is Joanne Cave and I am the Youth Director of Ophelia’s Voice in Sherwood Park, Alberta, Canada. I’ll be using this dream-to-action diary to describe how the Ophelia’s Voice project is going.

Ophelia’s Voice is a project we are planning to pilot in September 2006 in partnership with the Strathcona Sexual Assault Centre. The pilot project will be from September – June, and divided into 4 10-week sessions. The session topics are: (1) Self Expression/Global Awareness and Leadership, (2) Body Image, Media, and Mental Health, (3) Violence, Substance Abuse, Relationships and, (4) Sexuality and Stereotypes. Each week we would meet for 2 hours for discussions, activities, and guest speakers led by a youth facilitator (me =D). Ophelia’s Voice would be an opportunity for teen girls aged 12 – 14 to discuss issues that affect them, get appropriate information, explore themselves through arts-based activities, and get involved in a strong community of other girls. We also will emphasize leadership and action in the program, encouraging girls to take on leadership roles and build on their confidence and self-esteem.
