ZOOM with us!
Girls Inc. of York Region recognizes that girls face more pressure today than they ever have before. That’s why it’s essential for us to continue to provide girls ages 5 through 18 with a safe space where they can slow down their world, without judgment and stereotypes.
Our Virtual Programs were developed with the same goal as our In person Programs; we actively strive to enhance confidence and self-esteem, while giving our Girls Inc. members the skills and tools they need in order to reach their full capacities, in a safe space where they can enjoy the company of each other, and just be themselves!
PROGRAM: Girls CLUB | Ages 5-8
DATE + TIME: Mondays + Thursdays | 4:00 P.M. – 5:00 P.M.
Girls will participate in engaging, educational and fun activities such as
S.T.E.A.M, baking, crafts, physical and sports literacy. They will learn about healthy
friendships, social and communication skills.

This is a social group for girls who want to build on their leadership, communication, and advocacy skills.

This program is also an opportunity for girls to earn their community hours for high school, and receive hands-on experience working in the helping field.
