Our classroom sessions focus on developing various academic skills such as reading, writing, team building, confidence etc. We also facilitate workshops that support emotional wellbeing, leadership skills and digital development.
Our qualified female coach-educators are equip to support participants on issues such as positive relationships, eating disorders, self-esteem and crime prevention.
These sessions are typically offered after school and run weekly for an hour.
FFEM focuses on using the power of sport to engage young girls and build confidence and resilience at a crucial age where sports drop outs and general low self esteem are at an all time high (only 12% of girls get enough physical activity each week - NHS).
Our sports sessions are typically 1 hour where the participants partake in fun and inclusive team building group activities in a safe welcoming environment.
Our participants have made some amazing progress since the introduction of FFEM, with "52% of FFEM participants have played their first football match" and "39% of the FFEM participants having never played competitive football before this project".
A big part of our ethos is rewarding commitment and positive development.
We provide at least 4 half term enrichment trips during the course of an academic year as well as a 3 day residential away trip during the summer term.
Previous FFEM participants attended 9 reward trips, including a trip to TEDx Teen Talks and Southbank’s Women of The World festival which featured some key international speakers, exhibitions, and young women having their say on global issues.
