Raised so far
Fearless Women supports young women aged 10 to 25 in the Canberra Region with their mental health and well-being challenges.
Young women in the ACT experience a higher level of psychological distress than any other group in Australia.
Fearless Women has taken a local approach and built on national and international best practice and research.
By engaging with girls and young women Fearless Women has been able to unpack and understand what is worrying them, and how this is affecting their psychological well-being, relationships, confidence, levels of achievement, self-worth and hope.
Girls and young women have been involved in the developing the most suitable ways of delivering our mentoring, education and counselling programs.
Our two year one-to-one mentoring program pairs young women with an older, non-judgmental volunteer female mentor who provides advice, guidance, and practical help in navigating the transition from being a child to adulthood.
Fearless Futures, an education program, addresses the unique challenges faced by young women growing up in the Canberra Region. It gives girls in Years 5 to 10 skills and knowledge to tackle some difficult topics such as friendships & bullying, who am I? my place in the world, building resilience, how when and who to ask for help, and how to support a friend who reaches out. Fearless Futures sessions take place in schools and community groups.
Our objective is to intervene early to avoid the need for longer-term mental health support. We aim to provide an inclusive, safe space for young women to find their way, to enhanced self-belief, inner strength and resilience...fearlessly.
