Project Athena was established in February 2017, providing a girls-only night for young women (aged 10 to 16) in order to help them navigate the transitions between primary and secondary school and girlhood and womanhood.

Project Athena operates in term time on Tuesday evenings from 6pm to 8.30pm

Our sessions offer young women opportunities to acquire technical or practical skills, but they also learn to speak up for themselves and voice their opinions without fear of being judged or ridiculed. Individual sessions have included fencing, self-defence, cooking, trampolining, goal ball, virtual reality workshops, make-up and hygiene talks, lessons on making natural beauty products, football, art and graffiti workshops, textile and fashion workshops and off-site trips.

Through Project Athena we are enabling young women to recognise their self-worth so they can decide for themselves how to shape their futures.

Please register to attend sessions at Project Athena - Rugby Portobello Trust
