Did you know that the Women’s Centre has ongoing programs for girls who want to change the world? There are FREE opportunities for girls between the grades of 5-12 to build community, discover their existing strengths, and build upon their leadership skills all while doing fun activities and social action projects. All snacks, supplies and bus tickets are provided.

Girl Power After School, starting back up again on September 6th, is for girls in grades 5 and 6. Girls get to explore issues that they’ve identified as important to them such as body image, relationships, and identity. Doors open at 3:30pm, and programming runs 4-5:30pm, Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Girl Force, for girls in grades 7-9, will be starting back up again on September 11th. Every Tuesday evening from 6-8pm, girls gather to lead sessions for each other, further develop their leadership skills, and discuss various social issues.

Girl Up is our leadership and activism volunteer program for girls in grades 10-12. Starting on September 10th, girls will meet every Monday from 6-8pm, and will be supported in uncovering their own leadership potential.

All of our programs for girls are drop-in and sign up will be ongoing. Interested? For more information about the program or for details on how to register, please contact Alexe at 403-264-1155 or [email protected].
