Black Girls Empowerment Programs

Black Girls Leadership (BGL)

Black Girls Leadership mentoring program paired black girls between grades 10-12 with young adult black women in an area of interest to increase their leadership and reinforce positive role modelling.

This program responds to a need in our communities by providing support to these girls and helping them to showcase their skills and realize their full potential.

The Inner Child Series (ICS)

"The Inner Child Series" program aims to mobilize our young girls aged 6 to 11 years old and provide them with a safe place to learn, share, explore and appreciate the wonderful world of art.

With a focus on leadership, career development and mental health The program encourages young girls to develop a better relationship with their inner voice through participation and the expression of art through a variety of workshops. (reading, crafts, storytelling, music, painting, dance and theatre).


BGC is a unique space for young Black girls aged 12 to15 to socialize, learn and share. BGC engages girls through four pillars of interpersonal development: Self-Care, Self- Image, Empowerment, and Development. They have a safe space to communicate with each other about their issues (e.g. feelings, school, life, self-care, etc.). The girls will have the opportunity to explore, volunteer and learn the history of Canadian culture and their cultures. With trips in the city and its attractions, the girls will learn more about Edmonton's heritage, and the contributions of BIPOC communities to the society.

Through the activities the participants would be able to enhance their creative thinking skills and observational skills, develop empathy and connect with history which allows them to be in tuned with their creative side. They would be able to further explore and discover cultural impacts, history, techniques and meaning behind art.
