SOUL’s Vision

SOUL enables girls to find the power to be themselves, blending both face-to-face and online relationships. SOUL gives girls the tools and confidence to create a more meaningful life through its programmes and encourages girls to change perceptions and make people rethink and dissolve their unconscious prejudices, especially towards girls.

SOUL’s Genesis

SOUL was founded by Julie Bartlett MNZM who was successful in reducing prejudice towards young people with disabilities through award-winning charity StarJam, which she also founded. Building on these successes, Julie is dedicated to ‘setting girls free’ through programmes designed to ditch discrimination and prejudice. Meet the rest of our SOUL team.
