Strong Girls, Strong World

After two years of Strong Girls, Strong World (SGSW) programming across Canada, the projects have officially wrapped up! SGSW was a youth driven empowerment project focusing on leadership and community engagement across Canada. This exciting initiative was implemented by the YMCA, and YWCA of Canada, while supported by Plan International and the Status of Women Canada. Through this project Youth Advisory Councils were formed, social justice art exhibitions were created, gender awareness and inclusion toolkits were developed and taught through peer-to-peer workshops and presentations, and countless social media campaigns were launched!
We are grateful to have been a part of such an incredible initiative. Plan International Canada would like to extend a warm thank-you to Status of Women Canada for their generous support and to YMCA and YWCA Canada for being implementing partners.
