Meet some the girls we’ll be helping become more empowered and valued:
YWCA Toronto’s Girls’ Centre is a girls-only space. At the Centre, girls 9 to 18 years of age try new activities, develop skills and discuss topics in a safe place.
Girls build leadership skills, enhance their self-esteem, learn to live safely in their communities, make new friends and learn to understand and challenge the world around them. Girls and young women receive support on difficult issues, share ideas, express creativity, explore interests and plan their futures. And they have a lot of fun!
Programs at the Centre include media and tech training, mentoring, volunteering, leadership skills, participating in civic engagement, and arts.
