If you don’t like something, change it, change your attitude. – Maya Angelou
Who we are
Generation Girls is a service from Mind in Haringey dedicated to mentoring and supporting young women achieve their goals, dreams and aspirations.
We are here to encourage our next generation of young women so they can see that their circumstance; past or present, does not define who they are or who they can become.
You alone are enough. You have nothing to prove to anybody. – Maya Angelou
What we do
Generation Girls engage with, support and encourage young women, aged between 16-25 years old with their goals and ambitions in order for them to lead productive and fulfilling lives. Through our support, training and mentoring, we provide them with the tools to overcome their challenges and help them with signposting to other support organisations to improve mental health and wellbeing.
How we achieve this
Our workshops focus on how to become the best version of yourself, with tips on well-being and self-care, practical finance, personal grooming, vision boards, cooking on a budget and more.

Activities such as team building

Success is liking yourself, liking what you do, and liking how you do it. – Maya Angelou
