Building Self-Esteem for Back-to-School

Most of us can look back on our school days and think of a time or two when we didn’t shine. We struggled to figure out who we were and what we wanted to become, all the while trying to find a place to belong. For some of us being involved in activities we were passionate about, like sports, drama, or choir, provided that place and gave us the confidence to shine. For others, it took a bit more encouragement to find their shine. Here is how Delivery Home Shopping Centre is helping this Back-to-School.

“We want to help young girls discover what makes them unique” says Marketing Director Tricia Schmuland, so we’ve teamed up with Beyou Girl, a national cause marketing campaign created to increase self-esteem and empower young girls across Canada. To launch this campaign, we’re giving one lucky Beyou Girl a chance to win a $100 gift card to Delivery Home Shopping Centre and a photography session with @quantumimagesinc. What makes you a Beyou Girl? Do you like to play the cello, create pottery, write poems, cook, volunteer, skateboard? The options are endless! Show us what you are passionate about and enter the Instagram contest by September 17. Visit Delivery Home for full contest details.

In addition, on September 17, Delivery Home Shopping Centre is hosting a personal and professional development tradeshow for young girls that celebrates their growth, diversity, and self-worth. In partnership with Big Sisters Abbotsford and The Sparkle Project BC, Delivery Home Shopping Centre is working to raise awareness, raise funds for Big Sisters, and increase self esteem in young girls through teaching healthy eating and lifestyle skills. Check out Delivery Home for more details.

To learn more about how Big Sisters is encouraging young girls to discover who they are and how to shine, through their Go Girls program, read about their 7 Session Mentoring Program. The sessions cover topics like the importance of eating healthy food and getting regular physical activity that help with self-image. The program also aims to help girls discover what their unique strengths are, build Leadership skills and develop friendships that are built through mentorship and group activities.
