Girls Inc. Building Better Canadian Citizens includes hands-on activities to spark girls’ interest in civic leadership and engagement. It is about building opportunities for girls and their families to discover their civic and political leadership capabilities, challenge the status quo, address the existence of inequalities, vocalize the need for change, and see citizenship as a duty and a right. We want girls and their families to understand the many ways they can shape their world by voting, lobbying, writing, community service, and advocacy.
Through this focus, we empower girls and their families to recognize that they are leaders in this world and help them discover their collective voice for change is strong and powerful.
