If you’ve got a daughter between the ages of 10 and 12, in grades 5, 6 or 7, there’s an event coming up in Toronto that’s designed just for you both.
Founded in Vancouver in 2014, G Day is a community-based rite of passage event series that welcomes girls ages 10 to 12 into adolescence. The event brings tween girls together with each other and their “grownups” in a safe space to celebrate this important time in their life.
G Day Toronto will unite 200-300 girls, in addition to 150-200 “Champions” (girls’ parents, caregivers, elder siblings, etc) and a team of volunteers, in effect becoming the “Village”, if only for a day.
This full day event features a diverse lineup of workshops for both the girls and Champions. Girls will connect with themselves and each other through movement, yoga, art, meditation and inspiring presentations on sisterhood, women in technology, loving your body, and more. Champions will learn strategies for communicating with adolescents, balancing stress in family life and promoting self esteem in adolescent girls.
Here’s a peak at the G Day event that took place in Vancouver last November:
