Wise Up

Wise Up is a programme for teenage girls, providing an opportunity for discussion, questions and information on a wide range of topics relevant to teenagers today. The resource pack promotes the value of living a healthy lifestyle and equips participants to make informed and wise decisions as they grow older.

The Wise Up programme is based on a Christian foundation, and promotes biblical truths and values. However, sessions can be adapted for work in both secular and Christian settings – making them suitable for groups of girls meeting in schools, youth clubs and churches.

What youthworkers say about the resource pack...

“The material is really good – the sessions have a variety of activities to cater for different learning styles and the topics covered look really relevant to the kind of issues the girls I'm working with are facing. It will be so useful in our work, and will hopefully help us to help our girls get to grips with how they see their place in the big wide world!”

“As a youth worker it is great to have such good material to pick up and run with, saving lots of time and knowing that you are using good resources. I believe that as youth workers one of our main roles if to map out with young people a route to travel that gives them a better chance of finding the best approach to life. Wise Up is a brilliant resource for anyone who wants to build confidence, wisdom and hope into teenage girls lives. It tackles all the hot topics with insight, relevance and humour. Buy it and run a Wise Up group – your girls will love you for it!”

“Wise Up is an invaluable resource for anyone passionate about helping teenage girls to make positive and informed lifestyle choice. It's comprehensive and insightful, covering everything from good eating habits, to how to express yourself and form healthy relationships with those around you. The sessions are accessible and clearly thought through. I'd love every girl I know to have had a space to grapple and deal with these key life issues – Wise Up's syllabus is a much needed resource and should be in every youth worker's hand.”
