COVID-19: How Your Support Helps Women and Girls During the Pandemic

Express Our Diversity

Second Story Women’s Centre, Lunenburg, Nova Scotia

Express Our Diversity empowers girls and students who identify as female to develop a healthy sense of themselves as individuals, and as members of diverse communities. The first part of the program is Express Yourself, a weekly session that focuses on confidence-building and self-expression for participants age 9 to 13. It is offered in four schools to students in Grades 4-7. These sessions help participants to identify themselves within their communities, and to determine the strengths they can contribute. Both programs focus on issues including social expectations, self-esteem, body image and sexuality, social media and pornography, healthy relationships, and decision-making.
Grant amount: $120,000 over 4 years
