Risha Yorke, a local success and business coach, is hosting a free five-day workshop in confidence and leadership for up to 15 teen girls 12-18 from March 11-15.

It is being generously hosted by the Leacock Museum in the Swanmore Hall.

The workshop is a condensed version of Yorke’s 12-week transformational leadership course for women, License to Succeed: Lead Without Permission.

In working with professional women, Yorke heard the feedback on the importance of the program, the impact on their confidence and the value it brought the participants.

To deliver these insights to women at a vulnerable and transitional age, Yorke developed a five-day version for teen girls in order to empower and elevate them.

The goal is to give teens the skills and tools that will build them up and lead them down the path to success.

The course highlights self-discovery, goal setting, leadership skills and communication tips.

Yorke's vision for this boot camp is that it creates a safe space for young women to gain a new perspective, feel a little pampered and build new and supportive relationships.

Sponsored by local chefs and restaurants, the daily lunches are catered by Melanie Robinson Catering, Gourmade Thyme Catering, The White Lions Tea House, R Cottage and Burrito Boyz.

Hoping to fill the class to 15 young ladies, Yorke Motivational Consulting is encouraging any and all to nominate a teen girl, aged 14-18, by visiting

The Lead Without Permission: Teen Bootcamp 5-day program is valued at $5,000, but with the help of generous sponsors and volunteers, Risha Yorke is delighted to offer it to these young women without financial barrier, free of charge.
