Shine Women Kiama

SHINE WOMEN, is a Community based small group programme, for supporting, empowering and mentoring local women, to discover their worth and strength to make healthy life decisions.

Jeanine Maxwell, a qualified Social Worker, worked in Child and Family Welfare agencies, and Counselling, during her 40 year career, before retiring to Kiama.

In 2012, at the invitation of Kiama High School, Jeanine recruited, trained and facilitates a team of women to run ShineGirl for Year 8 girls selected by KHS, who are struggling with the pressures of adolescence.

ShineGirl is a Personal Development, Life Skills Programme.  The students love the programme, and the KHS staff say the girls who have completed the 9 week Course have increased confidence, and are more at ease socially. Kiama High School requested a similar programme for boys.  Jeanine recruited and trained a team of men to facilitate Strength in KHS, for Year 8 boys. It commenced this year, 2016.  Shine and Strength are supported financially by KHS P&C, Kiama Council, local Rotary and Lions Clubs.

SHINE WOMEN commences on Friday 14th October, 10-11.30am,

At Minnamurra Anglican Church Hall, 17 Railway Pde, Minnamurra

Sponsored by Kiama Anglican Church.

Registration required.

Free.
