GLOBAL GIRLS

Global Girls is a safe space for young women from various ethnocultural backgrounds to build new relationships, develop their sense of self-confidence and identify pathways to be able to achieve their goals.

WHAT WE OFFER

Members of Global Girls benefit from:

  • New friendships and supports
  • Increased confidence in decision making, identity and leadership skills
  • Opportunities to volunteer and try fun activities

HOW DOES THE PROGRAM WORK

Bi-weekly, Thursdays 3:15 pm - 5:30 pm, we organize activities for participants such as listening to guest speakers, participating in wellness activities, preparing for employment. This program is driven by the participants’ interests and needs and aims to connect women to each other, community networks and the labour market while building confidence and providing practical tips for reaching their goals. It also has a physical activity component with field trips to engage in non-traditional recreational activities.

WHO CAN ACCESS THESE SERVICES?


  • Immigrant women aged 16-22 years of age.
