More about Radiant Girls & The Founder Gina Faubert
Our girls programs are designed to fill the need of teaching our youth to love and nurture their body, develop inner strength, manage stress and worry productively, express themselves freely, build confidence to follow their dreams, and courage to be unique.
The Radiant Girl's Leadership program begins with icebreakers, bonding, and the theme of the day. This lesson is woven into a movement activity like yoga or pilates, then into an art project or activity, followed by self reflection and a group share.
These programs are taught by Gina Faubert a certified life coach, and yoga teacher, and wellness speaker. Gina is the founder of Radiant Girls Inc., an organization dedicated to increasing girls self esteem and leadership, through health. Radiant Girls programs empower girls through coaching, camps, retreats and school seminars.
“As a child and young adult, I was blessed to have meet a number of fantastic coaches and mentors who supported me when I needed it most. I also was lucky to discover the mental-emotional benefits of movement. So today, I create environments that foster the same support I received, in hopes to empower young girls to find there own inner strength and become leaders in the world. Without the mentorship, skills, and confidence I received as a tween, my life would have been filled with constant stress, worry and fear. Kids desperately need to learn how to move their body, release stress, and know what empowerment feels like. More than ever our culture is void of these important skills. I believe girls who embrace these principles will be the leaders of tomorrow - and they will go on to inspire others!”
Girls will get the chance to experience a variety of fitness activities, like pilates, yoga, strength training, expressive dance, barre, and more. The art projects always involve meaningful and thought provoking self reflection activities like dream boards, painting, journals and meaningful jewelry.
Each session is dedicated to a particular value, or life lesson. The importance and impact of these lessons is discussed, followed by strategies and tools to implement it. Our themes include strength, courage, leadership, independence, kindness, gratitude, inspiration, positive thinking, and self care. Tools used in phycology, neurolinguistic programming, and coaching will be taught to provide the strategies to overcoming doubt, fear, anger, anxiety, insecurity and stress.
We'll have group chats, and games to evoke a meaningful experience that empowers her future. Plus, Gina takes time to connect with each girl in the group and provide one-on-one coaching to ensure this truly is making a difference.
Our programs will change the way your daughter sees the world, through tools and skills required to help her grow into a self-assured, healthy and loving young lady.

Increase Your Daughter’s Self Esteem
By age 11, 65% of girls report being insecure and unhappy. The pressures they face during this critical period can derail their self esteem and impact their future. So, what can we do as parents to help increase our child’s self esteem?
Combat Media with Truth
Limiting media may be helpful, but elimination is impossible. Showing them before and after photos of magazine ads that have been photo-shopped is impactful. There are some great Youtube videos on this subject. When girls see that much of what we see has been manipulated, they look at ads more objectively.
Great coaches believe that to build self esteem in a child, they must first be challenged, and then work to over come it. Fitness provides great opportunities for attainable challenges. Seeing a young girl smile when she realizes she’s getting stronger or stretching further is a proud moment.
Having your daughter ponder the life she’d like to create, what she is committed to, and what she won’t stand for are meaningful exercises for self reflection. When girls know who they really are, they are less likely to be drawn into peer pressure, and worries about being accepted.
Facilitating a strong foundation of critical thinking, self care, and self reflection are great ways to empower girls to transition into their teen years with the self esteem needed to be strong leaders!

Help! My Kid is a Picky Eater!
Parents are often shocked to learn daughter ate kale, avocado, quinoa, or cabbage at our camp and loved it. In fact, the girls often beg for the recipes! So what’s my secret?
I have spent hundreds of hours trying out kid-friendly recipes for superfoods. Sometimes it’s the way it’s cooked or how it’s seasoned. And I’m not talking cheese or ketchup. Organic butter, sea salt, fresh herbs, and mild spices are great. Success with just a few recipes is all you need.
Appearance is key. We make happy faces with our veggies, or hide greens is a purple smoothie. The more colour the more nutrients. Have kids pick produce from the rainbow on your next grocery shop. These make interesting veggie platters too!
Giving kids the responsibility to hold a knife or cook on the stove empowers them and to be proud of what they made. Best of all, kids love to be taste testers, which prompts opportunities for many games for the pallet.
Tips to get Superfoods into your little ones:
Add spinach or kale to your berry smoothie and a little pomegranate to keep it purple
Rinse and toast quinoa first, then cook in a chicken broth to give it more flavour
Brussels sprouts are great raw, shredded up in a salad with dried cranberries
Add sea vegetables to any kind of soup for it minerals and remove before serving
Use avocado or cashews to make a creamy salad dressing
