L Project 2016

We are fundraising to bring in more young women to the training! More information at the bottom of the page!

 

Girls Action Foundation is proud to offer a national gathering for self-identified young women for the first time since 2012. 

Are you a self-identified young woman between the ages of 18-25? Would you like to reflect on how we thrive together and create opportunities to grow beautifully as young women? Do you find the word leadership overrated and exclusionary?

The L Project is not your typical leadership training. Leadership does not mean power or authority; leadership does not mean being the loudest or most outspoken member of the group.  Leadership can mean many things and can be expressed in many ways. We believe that everyone has leadership potential and that we must all be leaders together to create change.

This experience will be a space to develop new contacts and networks, to explore who we are, to find mentors and inspiration for project ideas. This training will be a space to come together, and think critically about the communities we live in. It will also be an opportunity to explore those issues faced through the use of media arts.   

The L Project training will take place from November 2nd to 5th 2016 at a resort in Quebec. Most costs are covered by Girls Action Foundation including travel, meals and accommodations during the training. Participants are expected to arrange transportation to and from airports or train/bus stations and to plan some pocket money for extra meals/snacks if needed. Since we don’t want to exclude anybody give us a call if you would require more support to get there.

We are committed to creating a safer space that respects diversity. Therefore we encourage Trans girls, newcomer and immigrant girls, girls with precarious status situations, girls from diverse background and heritages and girls living with disabilities to apply. We will do all that is in our power to make it possible for you to participate.

Girls Action will prioritize applicants who have had less access to leadership development opportunities in the past.
