The #LeadLikeAGirl program offers an 11-month journey tailored for girls aged 8-17, residing in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA).
This program is meticulously crafted to cultivate leadership, confidence, and self-efficacy skills. It offers a unique blend of experiences designed to expand their understanding of climate justice, introduce them to unconventional sports, and provide them with introductory French language training.
Participants will have the chance to engage in mentorship with accomplished female leaders from various industries, gaining insights into non-traditional career paths in STEM, gaming, public affairs, business, and the ever-important climate sector, among others.
Furthermore, girls will forge connections with their peers, honing their teamwork, communication, and collaboration skills as they collaborate on a significant project aimed at addressing climate-related challenges within their local communities.
