The Dove Real Beauty Workshop for Girls is a FREE, fun, educational and interactive session for young girls ages 8-12 and their adult female mentors: mothers, relatives, friends, anyone interested in starting a dialogue on beauty and self-image with a member of the next generation. Students in the Mitchell College Behavioral Science Club and Psychology of Women class will present the 11th annual workshop on Thursday, March 21 from 6-7:30pm at Mitchell College’s Weller Center.
By attending, you’ll learn how society creates “ideal” images of beauty and how to engage young girls in a healthy dialogue about self-esteem. The ninety-minute program begins at 6 p.m. in the Weller Center and is designed to promote self-esteem in girls partly through educating girls about a wider definition of beauty. The curriculum is provided by the Dove Campaign for Real Beauty, and the workshop will be led by current Mitchell College students.
