YWCA GirlSpace Toolkit on 1 GB USB key

YWCA Canada is pleased to present the YWCA GirlSpace Toolkit. YWCA GirlSpace reaches out to girls with quality programming addressing key social issues facing young women. As a signature Turning Point Program™, GirlSpace aims to address the dearth of girl-only programs by offering girls the opportunity to increase their awareness about violence and its root causes, while exploring identity, personal achievements, and building positive self-esteem.

The GirlSpace Toolkit is designed to provide girls' program coordinators with programming and activities to engage young women in discussing issues that are important to them. Designed to be motivating, fun and accessible to all participants, it challenges girls to reflect on important issues that affect their lives by:

• Increasing the capacity of young women to make informed choices in their lives.
• Enabling program workers/facilitators to use the activities to effectively engage young
women on issues that affect their lives.
• Strengthening the capacity of program workers/facilitators in working with young
women engaged in GirlSpace activities.
