Power of Being a Girl

At the Y, we are committed to violence prevention initiatives for girls and young women.

The Power of Being a Girl™ is a signature YWCA Canada violence-prevention conference for girls ages 12-14. Power of Being a Girl™ offers a day of fun in a safe and moderated environment with informative and educational programming, focusing on girls’ developmental needs to prevent violence in their lives while encouraging leadership in the planning and organization of the event.

The conference responds to local community needs and relies on girls’ leadership in its planning and organization with workshops focusing on a variety of issues such as:

  • Self-esteem
  • Body image
  • Discrimination
  • Dating
  • Healthy relationships & communication
  • Internet Safety

Girls will learn to:

  • Take action
  • Build confidence
  • Stay safe
  • Prevent violence
  • Be a leader
  • Use their voice
