Inspire is all about you! That means having the courage to be you – liking yourself, appreciating your body and valuing the unique person that you are.
Inspire is all about relationships! That means having great friendships that inspire you and having the knowledge and strength to make good decisions about love and relationships.
Inspire is all about keeping it real – real girls, real issues and real information!
The Gold Coast Centre Against Sexual Violence Inc. is a community based organisation that provides free counselling and support to women and young women who have experienced sexual violence at any time in their lives. We also provide education and training to the broader community. The Centre has a strong commitment to the prevention of violence and working towards a safer community. As a part of this commitment, we developed the award-winning ‘Picture the Peace and Reject the Violence’ Program and the ‘SHE – Strength Health and Empowerment’ Groups for Young Women.
In working with young women, we found that most of the information about themselves and their relationships was gained from magazines. This information led us to obtain funding to develop and produce an innovative magazine for young women that gave them access to positive and inspiring information.
40,000 copies of the first two editions of Inspire have been distributed throughout Australia and overseas! Along the way, Inspire has… won awards, worked with a whole bunch of amazing young women, received fantastic feedback from our readers and the
community and launched this website!
Now, edition 3 is finally here! We hope you enjoy it! You have all constantly inspired us and we hope that you will find some inspiration of your own in this latest edition.
