BECOME A PATRON OF FIRE
And empower our next generation of female leaders, entrepreneurs and adventurers
WANT TO GET INVOLVED WITH GIRL SHAPED FLAMES?
Over the past 3 years Girl Shaped Flames has inspired and empowered over 3000 teenage girls across Queensland by connecting them with over 250 Extraordinary Women to develop their self confidence, life skills and mental and emotional resilience.
Our 2021 Patron of Fire initiative gives the opportunity for both women and men to directly impact the lives of our future female leaders, entrepreneurs and adventurers. With your help, we can offer scholarships to Camp Courage, so even more girls are able to experience our confidence boosting camp.
OUR PARTNERSHIP WITH HEADSPACE (SE QLD)
Girl Shaped Flames recognises the incredibly important work headspace undertakes with our young girls nationally, and are proud to be partnering with them to provide headspace youth across in SE QLD access to our range of 2020 GSF Academy Workshops.
These workshops cover important topics that aim to develop robust mental and emotional resilience such as: fear, failure and overwhelm, emotional intelligence, communication and financial literacy.
For each Patron of Fire that registers, one headspace young school-aged girl will be invited to attend a life-changing half-day intensive workshop free of charge.
Each year, one in four young Australians experience a mental health issue.
headspace Taringa is one of 110 bricks and mortar headspace Centres across Australia, who work in partnership with young people, friends and families, communities, businesses and a range of health professionals to support the mental health and wellbeing of 12 to 25 year olds by providing a welcoming space offering information and services, at low or no cost.
Research shows that 75% of mental health issues emerge before the age of 25. By focusing on early intervention and providing tailored and holistic mental health support, it can greatly decrease the number of young people developing more serious problems in the future. headspace help thousands of young people get vital support, and give them the tools and resources to help them keep a healthy headspace.
Camp Courage is a unique 3-day residential experience just outside of Brisbane, QLD that provides teen girls in Grades 8-12 the tools to build their own sense of self, confidence, and opinions – and leave with life-long friendships and the increased courage and skills to succeed in school, relationship, work and life.
With the support of our Patrons, we hope to be able to offer at least 30% of places at Camp Courage to girls who would most benefit from the impact the camp has, but would otherwise be unable to attend.
We work with community organisations, charities and schools to source our scholarship recipients.
Our most recent camp continued to achieve outstanding impact for the girls:
