Lady Ballers Camp
Girls EQ: Revive, Renew, Reconnect addresses the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on the lives of Black girls from low-income neighbourhoods. The program will support girls with access to physical activities, while incorporating education to promote mental and emotional wellness. A counsellor crisis-line will provide support via text and/or phone. Participants can develop coping strategies through a basketball-based program, and mindfulness through yoga. They will also learn about nutrition, sleep hygiene, body positivity, healthy relationships, sexual health and gender-based violence, as well as how to connect with professional supports and resources.
