Who run the world? You know it.
The United Girls of the World Society (UGW) is aimed at addressing issues affecting the well-being of girls and women. This year, they’re presenting G Day, a national rite-of-passage celebration series for tween girls and their parents and other supportive adults in their lives.
On Saturday, October 19, girls between the ages of 10-12 will have an opportunity to try dance, martial arts, self-defence, or yoga and participate in workshops designed to support self-esteem, creativity, and positive peer relationships. Meanwhile, their adult allies will connect with professional educators and learn practical skills to champion the girls in their life and support their own self-care. Then, at the end of the day, girls and adults reunite for a moving celebration to mark and witness the girls’ transition into a new stage in their lives.
It’s a fun, inclusive day-long event that will give your tween a boost before she embarks on the next chapter. G Day takes place at Artscape Daniels Launchpad (130 Queens Quay E) on October 19 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Register here.
