For a 4th year now Girls Inc will be operating the Staying Strong Mentoring Program. This program focuses on Healthy lifestyles, self-esteem, art, leadership and anti-violence & anti-bullying through activities that are facilitated by the mentors. 

According to the Alberta Government, “Mentoring is increasingly recognized as a powerful course of action in the positive development of children and youth.”

These positives benefits are:

  • Improved attitudes about staying in school
  • Enhanced academic motivation and achievement
  • Strengthened peer, school and family relationships
  • Reduced risk of involvement in drugs and alcohol

Topics to be covered in mentoring sessions (but not limited to):

  • Leadership
  • Bullying
  • Confidence
  • Appreciation and kindness
  • Dealing with difference
  • And of course having lots of FUN! 

Parents must fill out the required registration and waiver forms here and bring them the first day of the program.

Organizer

Girls Inc of Northern Alberta

Girls Incorporated of Northern Alberta is a non-profit organization with a mission to inspire all girls to be strong, smart and bold. We provide girls 6 to 18 years old with the knowledge and skills needed to break free from gender stereotypes, create social change, be proud of who they are and be confident in their own skin.

Our programs are well developed and researched based, and we partner closely with local schools and youth organizations in order to implement them. Our programmers and volunteers care deeply about the general well-being of our girls, changing the systems within which girls and young women function and working to create an equitable society.

Girls Inc. of Northern Alberta serves communities all over the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo, and has partnership agreements with organizations throughout Western Canada to deliver our programs and positively influence girls’ lives. 

Mission – Vision

Empowering girls to realize their full potential through gender-specific programming that inspires all girls to be Strong, Smart and Bold.

We are a United Way Fort McMurray Funded Orgnization.
