Girls taking their space! Girls Club is Girls Action Foundation's after school violence prevention and empowerment program for 11 to 13 year old girls in the Montreal area. The program applies a popular education approach that, for each issue or topic, starts from girls' lived experiences. Girls share their knowledge, build their skills, develop critical thinking and then move into action.
In this report, I visited a Girls Club in Verdun where they were unveiling a mural the girls had been working on for weeks.
