Girls Empowerment Program (Girls Group) is a partnership between Surrey Safe Schools, City of Surrey and the Surrey Firefighters Charitable Association. The program targets girls in grade 8-10 who struggle to make and maintain healthy relationships, have school/community based behavioural issues, and are not attached to pro-social activities at home or in the community. The program runs once a week from 2-4 p.m. at various secondary schools.
The purpose of the Girls Empowerment Program is to engage youth in positive pro-social activities, connect them to positive adult allies, and bridge them to positive networks in Surrey.
Girls Group offers both school-based and non-school based activities to learn life skills like cooking, hear from guest presenters, and engage in positive social activities, such as climbing, yoga, self defense, pottery, camping and swimming.
These activities gives students the opportunity build confidence, provide them with support, and give them mentors they feel comfortable talking to.
Please contact your student's school for more information.
