Girls on Boards

Mia Lockhart, Director and Founder of Girls on Boards will be guiding you through this leadership course with live zoom calls and interactive lessons. Mia started Girls on Boards in 2017 as a mission near and dear to her heart. Her desire to build body confidence and self love through immersive recreational experiences as radical activism for both gender equality and improving mental health comes from her own experience of anorexia as a young teen, then raising girls in this high pressure age and also seeing the power of healing and empowerment in our own bodies as a massage therapist for 20 years. Her goal with this training is to not only build a community of leaders bringing Girls on Boards programs to their areas but to also lift up and empower a group of self-loving, change makers creating a better tomorrow by showing up more fully today. You are here for a reason, if this work resonates with you, let's amplify it in YOU. Thank you for being here.

Our goal with the Licensed Provider Program is to build a network of providers of Recreation Empowerment Programs, using the power of immersive recreational experiences infused with vulnerable, body positive conversations to create a positive impact on the mental and physical health of youth in our community.
