EACH DAY IS SOMETHING NEW !

Allies in Action

With girls experiencing aggression, fearfulness, violence, and cyberbullying as an all too common experience, Allies in Action offers tools to navigate difficult social situations. Through communication skills, peer supports, and identifying negative behaviours early, build self-esteem, focus on stress management and healthy relationships.

Operation SMART

Through this broad approach for all our Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) programs, girls are encouraged to explore their interests in STEM, learning to identify key topics in STEM throughout their daily lives. They are also exposed to a variety of careers and model roles in STEM fields.

Mind+Body

Mind+Body supports and promotes the whole health of girls ages 6 to 18, using a philosophy which recognizes that many factors, including physical and mental wellness, contribute to girls’ health. Consequently, the Initiative focuses on four critical content areas; physical activity, body image, stress management and nutrition.

Media Literacy 

With girls facing media messages constantly, lessons in media literacy encourage girls to think critically about what they see in magazines, online, and in movies. This awareness minimizes the negative impact on girls and increases knowledge in marketing, media literacy, and social media safety.

GirlSTART 

“GirlStart” is a program to increase literacy skills, self-esteem and success for girls age 6-8. Rather than simply replicate school-day strategies, we provide opportunities for girls to learn how to enjoy books, writing, and playing with language. Offering fun and engaging activities that help girls build relationships, practice decision-making skills and build a love for reading.

Economic Literacy

By building on basic economic and financial concepts, Girls Inc. girls become familiar with money management, investment, and global economics, including gender equity in income and business.

Leadership and Community Action

Through the Leadership and Community Actions program, girls build leadership skills and create lasting social change through community action projects. Girls learn also how to identify needs in the community and how to gain community support for solutions.

In-person summer camp guidelines are being re-evaluated every day to ensure the upmost safety to our girls and our staff. We hope to be able to offer in-person camps in alignment with government restrictions. If you are interested in adding your name to our in-person camp waiting list please contact Vanessa at vderyck@durham.girls-inc.org and we will send out more information as things are continually changing.  We know that everyone is trying to be flexible these days… so at this time we have created a Girls Inc. Virtual Summer Camp Program that can be tailored to fit your family.

I struggled internally for a long time, but through Girls Inc. I learned that my body is a resource, not an object. I began to love and embrace my body.
