Identifying the problem coming up with a project to address it
We took some informal surveys, asked around, had a lot of conversations and we found that many middle school girls feel lost when it comes to their health and wellness. We decided we would tackle this problem as best as we could on our campus. After much discussion we felt our project should focus on building a healthy attitude, gaining knowledge, learning about local resources and making new friends at school would be the way to go.
At our club meetings we came up with many health and wellness needs. After narrowing it down, we decided to focus on the following areas. 1. Skin Care-We created a fun animated video using an online program called Animaker. 2. Body Shaming-We gathered images to include in our video presentation that could help us dialogue and share ideas on combating the problem. 3. Meditation-We showed 2 videos from the site "Headspace" and showed everyone how to download and use the app. 4. Girl Power-We created a video highlighting us girls with fun empowering backgrounds. 5. We decided we would have a fun raffle, give out a stress coloring book, pens, chapsticks, stress balls, and lots of cool fun goodies.
