Action jeunesse St-Pie X de Longueuil, Longueuil, Quebec
The Girls’ Program helps girls to develop media-literacy skills through activities and discussion. It aims to address the fact that girls are bombarded with messages that negatively influence their emotional, social, and physical well-being. Girls are encouraged to envision a world that is positive and inclusive by using various tools to create their own media. In group activities, girls critically analyze media and learn how to use it to share their own messages with the world.
