The ForUsGirls Foundation Girls Club
The ForUsGirls Foundation Girls' Club program builds girls*' self-esteem, assist them to build a vision for their future and find their own identity within their school and community. We achieve this by incorporating innovative creativity into our approach.
Our program is based on peer to peer conversations, engagement and thorough understanding of our collective experiences, journey, and marginalization. Girls' Club participants leave more confident with gained leadership and innovative skills to create their own successes and dreams.
*Those who identify as being a girl both binary & non-binary and transgender.
Your story is what you have, what you will always have. It is something to own.”
- Michelle Obama
The ForUsGirls Foundation Girls' Club program is for girls* in grades 5 to grades 12. We run our Girls*' Club weekly in primary, junior and secondary schools during the full school year. Currently, we have a partnership with 5 schools in three different school boards.
We are in partnership with the Lester B. Pearson School Board in Beurling Academy High School, Riverview Elementary, Verdun Elementary, The English Montreal School Board in Parkdale Elementary and recently Pierre Elliot Trudeau Elementary in Gatineau, Quebec.
You shouldn't let the things that make you different stop you from pursuing whats important to you."
