For more than 10 years, Dove has been helping parents, mentors, teachers and youth leaders deliver self-esteem education that's reached over 2.5 million young people across Canada so far. Join us to help reach even more!


What is the Dove Self Esteem Project?

The Dove Self-Esteem Project was created from a vision where beauty is a source of confidence, not anxiety. Dove’s mission is to ensure that the next generation grows up enjoying a positive relationship with the way they look – helping young people raise their self-esteem and realize their full potential.

Why Plan International Canada Partnered with Dove

Plan International Canada has partnered with the Dove Self-Esteem Project because we both believe that no young person should be held back from reaching their full potential. However, low body confidence and anxieties over appearance stop young people being their best selves, affecting their health, friendships and even performance at school.


The workshop covers the following topics:
