In a safe, supportive space, girls aged 12 to 13 build healthy relationships, develop confidence, and learn how to identify and pursue their dreams. Through this 16-week interactive program, girls are encouraged to discover their strengths and abilities. There is a strong focus on helping each girl to find her voice and become comfortable sharing her ideas. The girls are empowered to put their visions into action and make a difference in their community through girl-led leadership projects. The program includes workshops/discussions, guest speakers, social activities, field trips, as well as creative activities like art, music, and dance.
