Power of Being a Girl

Each year near the end of October, the YWCA hosts ‘Week Without Violence,’ a week-long series of community events promoting diverse approaches to creating a violence-free world. As part of this important initiative, the YWCA Halifax organizes Power of Being a Girl, an annual all-girls conference for youth ages 12-16. This year’s Power of Being a Girl event will take place on Friday, October 28thin a picturesque setting on the Eastern Shore (transportation from Halifax/Dartmouth provided). We will explore issues important to young women, inviting them to become facilitators of change. This will be a fun-filled event with food, dance, art, film making and interactive workshops, all day-long!
