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. Starting in January 2019 we are expanding our Girls' Club to 3 additional schools; Parkdale Elementary, Verdun Elementary & Riverview Elementary.
Our "C for Coding" program prepares young women and girls from diverse social backgrounds with programming skills to start their own businesses and careers as web-designers and front-end programmers. Learning to code offers many benefits that supports the development of a well-rounded person including creativity, problem solving, critical thinking, teamwork, empathy, authentic learning, and increase confidence.
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 global feminist leaders to create a better world - starting locally here in Montreal.
