National Day of Action: February 14, 2014
Sugar and spice, and everything nice, that’s what Valentine’s Day is usually made of… or is it? For the 10th consecutive year on February 14th, girls and young women will steer away from the usual Valentine’s Day activities, and unite to create action-oriented projects that raise awareness about the issues affecting them and their communities.
Celebrating 10 Years of Girls and Young Women Taking Action
Building Bridges to Justice for Female Youth
National partnership project to address intimate partner violence and increase access to justice among marginalized young women
We need to start young to support girls in cultivating their confidence, skills and experience in order to reach their full potential. With the right conditions, girls can grow up to improve their own socio-economic situation and create a ripple effect in their communities. Creating those conditions starts with understanding that as girls grow up, they face many pressures and systemic barriers that influence their abilities to plan their futures and achieve financial security.
Girls imagining their futures!
Girls Action launched a National Career Day in November 2013, a new pilot project taking place across the country.
For the last six years, Girls Action Foundation has inspired girls to start imagining their futures during interactive Career Days held in Montreal schools. More than 100 women in traditional, outside the box and in-demand careers have shared their stories, passion and expertise with some 800 elementary and high school girls.
