Do you get fired up about issues and want to make a difference? Do you want to change things up in your life or community? Then why not join inspiring young women from across the country at the Young Women’s Leadership Training! (Or, if you know a young woman who could be interested, please pass this on!) The event is FREE. All costs for attending the training will be covered by Girls Action Foundation.


In 2012, The Young Women’s Leadership will be a bilingual training!! There will be workshops led in English and French! This means that whether you communicate mainly in English or French, you'll be able to fully participate!



What is the Young Women’s Leadership Training?

Girls Action will bring together 25 inspiring young women for 5 days to learn new skills, explore passions, dream, share and have fun.



You can learn how to:

 •    Organize projects in your communities

 •    Use multimedia (like photography and video) as a tool for change 

 •    Meet like-minded young women from across the country 

 •    Connect with mentors and other inspiring people


You don’t need to be an expert, you just have to be curious and want to learn!



You will be encouraged to:

 •    Discover and strengthen your own leadership style

 •    Discuss the importance of taking care of oneself and strategies on how to make that happen

 •    Develop a strong understanding of anti-oppression organizing


The entire training will be facilitated in both French and English.



What kind of commitment is necessary?
We expect participants to arrive at the training having thought about issues that interest them in their communities. This training is a stepping-stone to more learning and wider community involvement!

Who can take part?
YOU, if you:
Are a young woman between 16–25 years old


When is it?
The Young Women’s Leadership Program will take place from November 14th – 18th, 2012 in the Quebec Eastern Townships.
