Global Girls

Global Girls is a safe space for young women to make new connections, build their self-confidence, and explore their identity.

What We Offer


Global Girls participants benefit from:

  • An empowering place to feel like they belong
  • Connections to peers and role models who share similar experiences
  • Opportunities to try fun activities and learn from each other

How does the program work?


Global Girls is a virtual, drop-in program that runs on Thursday evenings. This program is driven by participants’ interests and needs: they decide what topics they want to learn about together, and what activities they want to do. Global Girls also creates opportunities for young women to connect to each other and to networks of support in the community. Please see www.emcnglobalgirls.ca for more information about our past activities.

Who can access this program?


Black, Indigenous, and women of colour, including women from immigrant and refugee backgrounds, from 15 – 21 years old.
