YWCA GirlSpace

GirlSpace is for girls and gender non-conforming youth in Grades 6-10. Girlspace engages youth in fun activities and discussions to explore ways to support each other, gain confidence, put an end to bullying and violence and explore topics that are relevant to being a girl in Kitchener-Waterloo.

GirlSpace is a FREE program and it runs for 8-10 weeks at a time at different locations across Kitchener-Waterloo ( keeping check this page to learn about upcoming locations). At Girlspace we are building positive self-esteem, challenging body standards, embracing teamwork and leadership and practicing self-love, all while creating friendships for life.
