Girls Group
Girls Group



​The Safe Schools department runs Girls Group at four Surrey secondary schools. The group takes selected students outside school to learn life skills like cooking, hear from guest presenters, and engage in positive social activities, such as climbing, yoga, self-defence, pottery, camping and wakeboarding.

Typically the girls taking part will not be involved in extra-curricular activities so Girls Group gives them the chance to gain experiences outside of school. The two-hour weekly sessions, which run from 2-4 p.m., help the students build confidence, provide them with support and give them mentors they feel comfortable talking to. Girls Group is possible thanks to the generous support of the Vancouver Foundation and the Surrey Fire Fighters Charitable Association.

Girls Group runs at Johnston Heights, North Surrey, Kwantlen Park and L.A. Matheson Secondary schools.
