What is Girls Belong Here?
The Girls Belong Here initiative is part of a global movement to amplify girls’ voices, advocate for their rights and elevate their position in society.
Since 2016, Girls Belong Here has created opportunities for young women to step into high-profile, professional roles to demonstrate that women belong at all levels of leadership and that they have a right to equal opportunity in all sectors.
Over the years, the Plan International Canada Girls Belong Here program has expanded beyond the Canadian border to the U.S., U.K., Sweden and Switzerland. Most of the Girls Belong Here activities take place prior to International Day of the Girl on October 11. To date, the program has matched approximately 150 female-identifying youth with business, government and not-for-profit organizations.
