About The Selfie Project
How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.
The Selfie Project is an Australian organisation committed to developing the wellbeing and leadership potential of young women.
Our vision is of a world where no girl is limited by their gender and our mission is to educate, inspire and empower girls to exceed their potential and live a life beyond their dreams.
Through our work with girls & young women across the country we have developed the belief & understanding that girls with a strong Sense of Self have a higher self worth, make healthier decisions aligned with their values, have happier relationships, are more confident & step up to leadership challenges in their daily lives.
Behind the scenes, are a team of experienced Primary and Secondary educators who work in consultation with industry leaders in the fields of positive psychology, education, wellness, & leadership.
It is this experience & understanding of the pedagogical needs of young people that creates powerful programs that inspire change.
We seek to
Provide the tools to navigate the white noise of adolescence
Build resilience in young people
Foster the development of a growth mindset
Build a strong Sense of Self by exploring character strengths & virtues
Develop Emotional Intelligence through mindfulness and self care techniques
Nurture confident, empowered young women who thrive
