The Strong Girls Strong North Girls Club provides inclusive, youth-led, and culturally-appropriate programming that helps girls to better understand violence and its root causes. Programming empowers young women to build self-esteem and make healthy choices, while fostering their leadership potential. Having a safe place to learn and grow is especially important in Canada’s North, due to its isolation, limited resources, and high rates of family violence. As a free, preventative, weekly, girl-specific program, Strong Girls offers a rare and much-needed space for participants to explore their gifts and strengths.
