Girls' Programs

We believe that within each girl beats the heart of a change-maker. We are committed to encouraging, supporting, and celebrating the future women leaders of Edmonton through our Girls' Programs. 

GirlSpace®

GirlSpace® is an after-school program that runs from September to February for 20 weeks of the school year. It's open to anyone who identifies as a girl between the ages of 11-18 years old. Using a research-based curriculum, groups meet weekly to discuss and learn how to:

  • Reduce the risk of violence in girls' lives
  • Improve girls' health and well-being; and
  • Set the stage for girls' development into strong, healthy, and empowered young women.

Registration for the 2017-18 program year is currently closed.

Watch for more information on the next registration period in Fall 2018.
