Deadly Sista Girlz
The Deadly Sista Girlz Program engages, inspires and empowers Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander girls between the ages of 8 and 17 years.
Deadly Sista Girlz is delivered by strong Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander role models and mentors; Josie Janz, Ashlea Walley, Alicia Janz, Kirby Bentley, Melina Saunders, Angie Blackburn, Stacey Mourish, Kate Malpass, Rochelle Dolby, Jennifer Martin, Kristie Hughes and Estee Pinder who aim to connect with the girls as a friend, confidant and a mentor to encourage the girls to develop their skills personally and socially to become great role models in their communities.
The Deadly Sista Girlz Program offers girls a stable environment in which they can discuss current and personal issues they may be facing and it allows the girls to trust and receive guidance in a safe environment.
Each girl has the opportunity to be personally mentored throughout the program and it is our goal to develop confidence and resilience so that they believe in themselves and their abilities to achieve success.
DSG addresses the issues of:
• Self esteem and confidence
• Sexual and women’s health
• Drug and alcohol abuse
• Healthy nutrition
• Financial literacy
• Healthy Relationships
The purpose of the Deadly Sista Girlz Program is to use our female role models to empower and enable young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander girls to make informed decisions about their personal health and wellbeing to lead a positive and healthy lifestyle. We want to give more opportunity to young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander girls to expand their thinking and become active members and leaders in their communities and create a brighter future for themselves, their families and the generations to come.
