Are you between 16 and 19? Passionate about social issues?

The YMCA du Québec and the YWCA of Montreal invite you to be part of a dynamic group of girls creating a project to raise awareness and improve their relationships and surroundings.

Strong girls, strong world is:

  • a leadership training weekend by and for girls in a natural environment in the Eastern Townships – October 24th-25th 2015;
  • meetings once or twice a month for the next year;
  • developing a project and taking community action on a topic chosen together, like sexism in the media, cyberviolence, homophobia or violence in relationships.
