Welcome to the GFS Activity Finder
These pages are designed to make it easier for you to plan impactful and empowering sessions for your group. It’s a great way to supplement your own activity ideas and ensure that you are able to cover all of the GFS programme themes.
All of the activities here are broken down by what age group they are suitable for and which if the programme themes they cover, making it really easy to search for what you need. Whether it’s a new run around game to help girls blow off some steam or something to help with their confidence is low, you should be able to find what you need.
We’ve also uploaded our activity packs for when you’d like a more thorough guide for a particular issue or period of time. These are a series of sessions that could be delivered in full or used as a starting point from which you can add some of your own ideas.
So… Use this site for inspiration. Use it when you’re short on planning time. Use it if you’re unsure how to cover a particular issue. Use it however is best for you!
