“This Confident Teens intervention has been perfect in the girls school where I work. I have heard girls use the knowledge they gained through the intervention and are helping their friends with issues. It has made so much of a difference to their own confidence to do this.
Keep up the great work in producing programmes like this.
An excellent purchase”

Hello! I’m Caroline
I’m Caroline Walker, I started Confident Teens because I was concerned about the many pressures on teen girls.
I’ve run hundreds of confidence workshops with teen girls in schools.
I want girls to see the amazing individuals they are, believe in their abilities and be ambitious for their futures.
Now I offer support in two ways:
1. For schools (in the UK and internationally) – an online programme with resources for teachers to run confidence-building sessions with girls. Find out more here.
2. For parents looking for support for their daughters – I offer pre-recorded videos supporting girls to gently build their confidence step by step. Find out more here.
Whether you’re a teacher or parent / carer you’ll find ideas and resources to help girls build their confidence.
“I’ve learnt to ignore what others think, do what I love and learn to be happy with myself”

Confident Teens’ five building blocks of building girls’ confidence:
Enabling students to build a sense of their own identity and uniqueness. Such an important starting point for developing confidence.
Being inspired by role models, and what they have overcome in their lives, students then set their own goals and make plans to achieve them.
Through understanding messages in society around “perfect bodies”, exposing the prevalence of photoshopping and valuing our inner selves.
Teaching students how to express themselves assertively, which helps to increase students’ confidence for speaking in class as well as with their friends and adults.
Developing awareness of how girls speak to themselves, they learn how to be encouraging to themselves, enabling them to further build their confidence over time.
