I Project Confidence: Girl is for younger girls, pre-teen/elementary age. The lessons are age appropriate, starting with the 3 I's - Intuition, Indicators and Instinct - and how to understand and develop them. Building on that is MY TOP 5, which is personal to each child. All the other lessons build self-esteem and self-confidence using these as a foundation. Scroll to the bottom for a sample lesson.
The handbook contains all of the lessons and corresponding questions for the course. Each handbook is created as the course progresses, so no two are alike.
Some Topics Covered in the Program Include: The Basics: Intuition, Indicators and Instincts the THREE I's

SAMPLE LESSON Working Together - Strengths and Weaknesses
Do you know your strengths? How about your weaknesses? Why does it matter? Here’s an example for us to look at to help you understand the importance of the two.
You are given an English project at school, and paired up with a partner.
You are good at writing - excelling at spelling, punctuation and paragraph structure, but have trouble coming up with ideas. At times your teacher has mentioned that your work lacks creativity. You groan when you are paired with Emily who you know is a terrible speller, super slow reader and a day dreamer. To make matters WORSE your teacher tells the class everyone has been perfectly matched and she is excited to see everyone’s work and to think outside of the box. What can that mean??? How would you approach the project?
· In one scenario you both get an F. You cannot see eye to eye with Emily, and the whole project is a struggle. The comments you receive from the teacher are, “I am disappointed the two of you did not find a way to work together.”
· In the second scenario you both get an A. The teacher is so pleased with your work that she asks you and Emily to present it to the class, saying it is the best work by far, and that you both exceeded her expectations.
How did the two ends of this story turn out so differently?
