Purpose: This 36 month project helps Grade 7 girls prepare to make the critical transition from elementary school to high school in Surrey. To enhance girls’ leadership skills, the project uses an intergenerational and intercultural model of learning that turns girls' vulnerability to violence into an opportunity for empowerment. It incorporates intergenerational mentors as well as high school and post-secondary student volunteers to provide timely education on girls' issues, opportunities for community service, learning and participation.
