Georgina Island Weekend Program
Girls Inc. Evening Programs and Workshops
Please scroll down to see upcoming evening programs and workshops.
Currently, our evening programs and community workshops are offered throughout York Region communities (including Aurora, Newmarket, Holland Landing, and Georgina) and are based on both need and interest. We provide community workshops and evening programs that are both recreational and educational for girls and their families to develop skills and foster new interests.
Workshops can include but are not limited to the following themes:
Youth Leadership: Girls meet for recreational opportunities and to focus on a specific study such as employment, self-esteem and social issues.
Issues through Play: Girls meet to learn problem-solving skills and explore issues through play. Empowerment, female rights and self-confidence are major components of this program.
Art Workshop: Girls support girls and learn problem-solving skills, self-expression through art mediums, self-realization, team-work and leadership through facilitator lead art projects.
Internet Safety/Cyber Bullying: This workshop educates skills on how to be safer on and off-line, teaching them about the risks, such as online predators, cyber-bullying and the consequences of revealing too much information and how to make responsible decisions.
Building Self-Esteem (Mother/Daughter): Self-respect, confidence and belief in oneself are the building blocks to developing self-esteem. The challenges and stress that girls face as they enter their teenage years can seem overwhelming to you and your daughter. Maintaining a good relationship and open lines of communication with your daughter is critical to her success in navigating this difficult time.
Parent/Guardian/ Daughter or Grandparent / Daughter Communication Workshops: We believe that the (grand)parent-daughter relationship is important because parents are such influential role models for their daughters. We also recognize the serious challenges in growing from girlhood to womanhood.
If you are a local business and/or Community Library that is interested in partnering with us to organize a workshop, please contact:
