CHAMPIONS OF CHANGE CLUBS

Champions of Change Clubs are led by young people in elementary schools, high schools, colleges and universities across Canada. These Clubs use educational resources to explore the local to global connection of social justice issues through the lens of girls’ rights. They also meet regularly to organize events in support of various social justice issues that Plan addresses. Clubs tend to be youth-led and supported by a teacher mentor. Champions of Change Clubs are an extension of Plan International’s global network of youth promoting gender equality and challenging harmful social norms through peer-to-peer mobilization. Members of Clubs, champion girls’ rights and gender equality by raising awareness, advocating and fundraising for Plan International’s Because I am a Girl movement.

Champions of Change Clubs are a great way for young people to build leadership, public speaking, event planning and advocacy skills.
