The Princess Shop's Mentorship Program Hosts Clarity Coaching

posted by The Princess Shop    |   February 28, 2016 11:15

The Princess Shop is most well known as a Saskatoon non-profit that runs an incredible grad dress program. What many don't know is that we also have a mentorship program called The Fairy Godmother Program. The purpose of the Fairy Godmother Program is to provide Princess Graduates who have participated in The Princess Shop's Dress Program with the opportunity to build a positive relationship with another woman in our community. These women, known as Fairy Godmothers, are volunteers who are established and stable in their own lives and wish to make a difference in the lives of young women. Each month during the school year the fairy godmothers and their princess graduates participate in a group activity. This month we welcomed Jolene Watson of Clarity Coaching to present to our wonderful matches!!

Jolene led the group through a one hour condensed version of the Myers Briggs personality assessment. It was an evening of self-discovery, instilling confidence in our young women to take the first steps into the dreams and goals they have personally set. 

Each session went through a series of explanations and examples of the 8 different core facets of personality, encouraging better self-awareness in many areas of life. There was even some laughter amongst the matches as they discovered which of the 16 personality types they best identified with. 

 

Jolene also provided the group with great stress relieving tactics to help diminish the daily worries we face. She left the group with a practical challenge. After each person discovered their personality type and learned about how their type interacts with others, they committed to one daily change in their behavior with a goal of fostering more positive relationships. 

With only one activity remaining in the program, we are sad to see the year come to an end. However, we are excited for relationships to continue and to see everyone again in the summer as we start a new cycle and welcome new participants to the program.

Applications for new entrants to the Fairy Godmother Program will open in April. We look forward to meeting you! 

Much Love,

Your Fairy Godmother Program Coordinator

Fairy Godmother Program October Activity

posted by The Princess Shop    |   October 23, 2014 15:41

The following is a post from Erika, one of our two Fairy Godmother Program Coordinators. Participants in the Fairy Godmother Program meet once a month for an activity as a larger group (outside of their individual meetings as matches). Here's an update on their October monthly activity! 

The Princess Graduates and Fairy Godmothers involved in the Fairy Godmother Program created dream boards during the October monthly activity. The girls were able to channel their creative side to develop a visual representation of their goals and aspirations. Career, travel, family and personal goals were all aspects included on the dream boards. Some Princess Graduates even placed dates on their long term and short term goals. 

I was thrilled to see the level of excitement the girls expressed throughout the activity. Before beginning the activity, Olivia (our other Fairy Godmother Program Co-ordinator) and I explained that the dream board should be a reflection of themselves in five years. This allowed for the girls to think about where they see themselves in the future, and what steps will have to be taken to achieve these goals. Goals ranged from graduating from the Edwards School of Business, purchasing a first car, and running a half marathon. Zoya, a Princess Graduate, humorously put a picture of Miley Cyrus on a wrecking ball- as a reminder of where she does not want to be. Many Princess Graduates said they would hang their dream boards in her room as a constant reminder of her goals. 

The activity also served as a strong discussion piece between the matches. Since the program is still in the development stages, it allowed for the matches to really get to know each other on a personal level. Fairy Godmothers were able to give their Princesses advice on how they reached their own personal and career goals. This also allowed Olivia and I, as program coordinators, to develop more personal relationships with all parties involved. All women involved with our program are such an inspiration to both Olivia and I. Their positive outlooks despite various setbacks are amazing, and it truly makes us value what we do!

Until November, 

Erika
