by Girls Out Loud in Manchester, Greater Manchester, United Kingdom

Girls Out Loud is a multi-award winning social enterprise based in Manchester on a mission to raise the aspirations, resilience and agency of teenage girls.

We do this be creating and delivering a range of early intervention programme including a 12 month mentoring programme called Big Sister and a 12 month coaching intervention called Stardom.

We are aiming to raise £25k to deliver a Stardom programme in a Manchester school for up to 14 at risk, vulnerable and disengaged young teenage girls.  These are the girls who monopolise teacher time as their behaviour is spiralling out of control.  They probably spend more time out of class than in it and are likely to be dealing with complex home lives, compromised parenting and may be young carers or in and out of the care system. Their behaviour is often compounded by older peers, onset mental health challenges around self-harming, anxiety and depression and drug and alcohol use.  They are at risk of permanent exclusion, grooming, being recruited into County Lines and gangs, teen pregnancy and being enticed into a life of crime.  If we do not act now their potential will be wasted and the ripple effect of this can last generation after generation.  From a social economic standpoint any investment we make now will save us millions on welfare, policing, housing and the justice system later in life.

The Stardom programme is an intensive, frame-breaking and preventive programme using the tools and techniques from mainstream coaching and mindfulness practices to help the girls understand their behaviour and responses and empower them to harness their potential to create a better life model.  It is delivered by a team of highly skilled and experienced Stardom coaches.

Over 12 months a Girls Out Loud Stardom Coach will spend 2 days a week in school delivering coaching sessions and workshops for a targeted group of these girls and will work as part of the pastoral team.


Here is our Founder Jane Kenyon talking about the programme


This is a highly effective , impactful and life-changing programme, as you will see from Amelia, a past Stardom participant talking at our last Shining Stars Ball where she won the Rockstar Award at the top of this page.   You can also view her full  story here


‘ I wanted to say a massive thank you.  When I started the Stardom programme, I have to admit I thought it was a good way of missing lessons, so this was the massive push for me to do it, but as the weeks went on I learnt so much about myself and others and also learnt different ways to think and behave.  This helped me realise my past approach and outlook was appalling and my behaviour was off the scale.  I am now on my way to college then University and I know I am going to do it and be the best I can be.  Without Girls Out Loud and my Stardom coach’s support – all the conversations and meetings, I would not have the confidence or belief or power to try as hard as I do today.  You made me a different person. You were there for me when I thought I had nobody, you cared, you listened and you gave me a new set of tools, I particularly love visualisation and still do this every day.  Your impact on my life is amazing.  I am stronger and more independent and I thank you with all my heart for your gift.’

“I can see the bigger picture and get perspective on things. I feel good about myself as I have learned that if I can speak about things that upset me, it can help me deal with the situation and my feelings. I would recommend having a coach a million times over. I was sceptical at first and did not want to open up, but things feel better. I have learned that it does not matter how many tears I cry it is not going to change the past and certain things are not my fault. I can choose what I think and think positively about the future that lies ahead!”

Kayleigh, 14 year old Stardom participant
