FOR GIRLS, GENDER DIVERSE YOUTH AND YOUNG WOMEN
Girls Action provides spaces for girls, gender diverse youth and young women to speak out, build skills, and create action on issues that are important and real to them. Our programs address violence prevention, mental health promotion, media literacy, and social issues education. They are also a doorway for mentorship, knowledge sharing, networking and community building.
Our programs provide long-term investment and support to young women and gender diverse youth who are changemakers in their communities.
“To me, leadership means making a difference in others’ lives and challenging myself to always do what is right for me.”

“My connection with Girls Action helps keep me ‘in the loop’ and motivated around my work. It also helps me see the bigger picture of what I’m doing with my girls’ program and imagine the long-term goal of what we’re collectively working towards – empowered girls.”
