Our local programs in Montreal run in schools and community centers. We partner with Beurling Academy in Verdun, Montreal for our weekly Girls' Club. A safe space environment for girls to develop skills, ideas and thinking during lunch in middle and high schools.
Previously we partnered with the Cote-Des-Neiges Black Community Association for our weekend "Brunch With Us" program. We are open to creating new partnerships with additional schools and community centers.
This year as a response to the need for technical and computer programming skills for girls we are launching our "C for Coding" 4 part weekend program. Registration will be available soon.
At ForUsGirls we believe in developing local global leaders for today! We are partnering with the UN Sustainable Development Goals to implement our SDGs Young Global Leaders weekend program. It is our responsibility as the global community to eliminate extreme poverty and create a better world for all. ForUsGirls is contributing to the efforts by training feminist global leaders to create a better world.
