About this webinar:

Girls Action Foundation is launching 3 new backgrounders intended to support the work of facilitators of girls’ empowerment groups, programmers and organizations working with girls and young women. The backgrounders offer current information, resources, practical tools, web-based materials and sample group activities on:

  • Girls, Alcohol and Depression
  • Girls, Smoking and Stress
  • Girls, Physical Activity and Culture

Join in to learn more about these resources and related tools that are grounded in a study of Girls’ Perspectives on Girls’ Groups and Healthy Living (2011)
which explored promising practices in girl-centred health promotion (See English and French reports). These backgrounders were developed in collaboration
with the British Columbia Centre of Excellence for Women’s Health, the Girls Action Foundation and the Canadian Association for the Advancement of Women and Sport and Physical Activity.

Special Note:  Please register by March 23rd. Once you register, you will be sent complete instructions for joining on the day, and the number to contact for support. If you have questions or would like more information contact: bccewh@cw.bc.ca
