Girls in Action engages girls in their school and community through physical recreation, environmental science and leadership.
The program provides an outlet for female students who need additional positive support and would benefit from enriching extra-curricular activities.
Through the leadership workshops the girls in the program have the opportunity to build positive self-image, self-confidence, self-esteem, leadership skills and community engagement. Physical recreation and science components provide girls with an enrichment opportunity and expanded learning environment outside the classroom which many girls would not otherwise have access to.
The program encourages these students to get engaged in some positive activities, and to keep them active in the community outside of school hours. The goal of this program is to provide an enrichment opportunity for girls in grades 4-6 to acquire skills, knowledge and understanding that are transferrable back into the classroom to support their development academically and to encourage them to become good community-based citizens in the process.
Girls in Action is currently located at five host elementary schools, working with 20 – 25 girls at each site.
