Great Girls partners with high schools in disadvantaged communities, offering Grade 11 and 12 girls the chance to enrol in a two-month programme. Participants attend the modules (five modules over two months), work on homework and assignments between modules, and are mentored throughout by a Great Girls Mentor.
Learning and staying connected does not stop once a Great Girl has graduated. We host quarterly workshops where we explore new topics to build the Girls’ knowledge and create a sense of community. Workshop themes are broad and we have covered topics like self defence, health and wellness, learning to code, design thinking and alternative careers. To see some of our past events, head to our gallery.
