The programs involved on each level revolve around teaching and mentoring participants in the areas of healthy lifestyles; including diet, benefits of positive thinking, and physical fitness. We will work on two main components and curricula regarding self-esteem and growth, as well as working with young girls who are at risk of being overweight and/or are currently overweight or obese.

Metamorphosis Incorporated incorporates the following curricula:

The Dove Workshop for Girls

Why do we need a Workshop?

Self-esteem has become a national crisis in this country. Recent studies prove that 70% of girls feel they do not measure up in some way based upon their outward appearance, performance in school, and personal relationships. Most disturbing is that girls with low self-esteem are engaging in harmful and destructive behaviours that can leave a lasting imprint on their lives.

What does Dove and Metamorphosis, Inc.

 hope to accomplish?

The Dove Self-Esteem Fund is part of the Dove Campaign for Real Beauty and was established as an agent of change to inspire and educate girls and young women about a wider definition of beauty, with a goal of reaching 5 million girls globally by 2010 with self-esteem programming. The Dove Self-Esteem Fund supports the Boys and Girls Club of America and the Girl Scouts of the USA to help build confidence in girls 8-17 with after-school programs, self-esteem building events and educational resources. Dove Self-Esteem Workshop for girls are designed to empower girls and promote new ways of thinking about beauty, body image and self-esteem with positive self-esteem building discussions and activities.

BodyWorks, developed by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Office on Women’s Health, focuses on helping girls ages 9 to 13 and their families create healthier lifestyles.

What is its purpose?

  • To provide parents/caregivers with tools & strategies to improve family eating and activity habits.
  • To support adolescent girls in reaching and maintaining a healthy weight.
  • To prevent obesity among adolescent girls.

How does it work?

A large share of adolescent girls have poor eating habits and do not get the recommended daily amount of physical activity.  In developing the BodyWorks program, the Office on Women’s Health (OWH) found that many girls skip breakfast, have non-nutritious lunches and don’t eat dinner with their families.  Girls spend about three hours a day watching television, playing video games, using the computer, and talking on the telephone, without parental limitations. 

Overall, girls expressed a desire to have their parents be stronger role models for fitness.  They wanted their parents to set boundaries for unhealthy eating habits and sedentary activities, and to engage the entire family in increasing physical activity.

The BodyWorks program, therefore, focuses on parents as role models and provides them with the tools and support they need to create healthy lifestyles for their children.  Parents who enroll in  the BodyWorks program will receive a BodyWorks toolkit and will attend regular group meetings to help maintain behavior change.  The toolkit serves as a guide to creating an overall health lifestyle.  It includes a video on healthy shopping and cooking strategies, a recipe book, food and fitness journals, a weekly meal planner refrigerator magnet and more.

The Dove Workshop for Girls and BodyWorks  involve parental involvement.  We will also be working with American Council on Exercise (ACE) Certified physical trainers who are well versed in childhood and adolescent physical fitness and self esteem issues.

"Teens have the Opportunity to Access Online Coaching With Top Authors and Experts"

[San Jose, CA] – January 2010 – Compass, a personal development social network and life coaching company, officially announced today the launch of Compass for Teens, an online coaching service available for Teen girls. Compass for Teens is designed to help teens understand that they are valuable, beautiful, and that they have something significant to offer the world. This service will inspire, empower, and connect teens with their goals, their passions, and their purpose through professional coaching and online personal growth and development. The teen program is available to any teen interested in improving their self-esteem, gaining confidence, and finding their purpose. Details about the program are available at www.mylifecompass.com.

Compass for Teens will feature life coaches, authors, and experts that are qualified and experienced in coaching teens. The first featured expert is Debra Gano, a model, actress, author, self-esteem coach, and founder of The Heartlight Girls, an organization dedicated to the empowerment of preteens, teens, and women. Through her Heartlight Girls book series, classes, and speaking events, Debra connects girls and women to the essence of who they are, building a foundation of self-worth “from the inside out,” at the core, where self-esteem begins.

Teen members of Compass will listen to a short MP3 of coaching with Debra Gano for a few minutes a day - 5 days a week. They can also chat with a life coach two to three times per month to talk about what is going on in their life. They can also join the Compass social network (Compass Personal Development Network or PDN) to connect with their friends, share their goals, and join groups and events. Teens will have access to an online journal, weekly to-do lists, contests, and more. They can also upload pictures, videos, blogs, and podcasts.

“We are thrilled to add life coaching for teens to our lineup of resources. To help a teen understand just how valuable she is can alter the course of her entire life. So many people wish they ‘would have known back then what they know now’. Compass Coaching for Teens is designed to give them hope and clarity about their future. Our community is thrilled about the possibilities when our teens understand just how valuable they are.” says Kim Fulcher, Compass Founder and CEO.

Compass and the Compass Personal Development Network (PDN) inspire, empower, and connect coaching professionals, Independent Social Entrepreneurs, Compass Clients and anyone interested in personal growth to make real improvements in their lives – whether it be losing weight, getting healthy, finding balance, changing careers, or improving your relationship
