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 and 2018 we will support 70 young women - 35 in Kingston, Ontario and 35 in 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.
