Comox Valley Transition Society
Courtenay, British Columbia

Girls Group is a supportive environment where girls who are marginalized for a variety of reasons can explore their unique experiences and gain knowledge and skills for healthy relationships and a healthy self. The group format is interactive, incorporating discussion and expressive arts. Through Girls Group, participants develop increased awareness and respect for diversity and for their own ability to become leaders and activists in preventing violence. Graduates are invited to participate in peer facilitation training where they gain the skills to co-facilitate the group with an adult facilitator.
