Girls Inc. School and Community Groups
Throughout the school year, we continuously run school and community groups for girls on a wide
variety of topics from bullying and relational aggression, to self-esteem and body image, to peer
pressure, healthy relationships and physical and emotional self-defence. We have several trained staff
members delivering school groups throughout our four county service district including KFL&A and
H&PE. If you are a teacher, student support counsellor, parent or other individual who would like to
arrange a group program for your school or group of girls, please contact Justine Marchand at our office
at (613) 542-9202, or send her an email at email@example.com.
