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. 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 our program coordinator.

Smart Start Youth Employment Program
Smart Start is a life changing program that helps young women set and reach goals for financial
self-sufficiency. Over 22-weeks participants are paid a training allowance and earn wages while they
gain work experience and make important decisions about the future.
In 2017, 2018 and 2019 we will support 100 young women in Kingston and Belleville, Ontario. If you
are a young woman living in these areas, between 15 and 30, and not currently working or in school,
we encourage you to click here to complete the application form.
