Giving girls the tools they need to achieve their education and career goals, empowering them to break cycles of poverty, violence, and abuse.

PURPOSE

Dream It, Be It: Career Support for Girls will help girls in our Surrey/Delta communities grow up to be strong, successful, financially independent women. Dream It, Be It targets girls in secondary school (grades 8—12), and provides girls with access to professional role models, career education and the resources to live their dreams.

CAREER FAIR

Our Career Fair features women from a variety of careers / occupations / trades / sports / resources speaking about their career choices, how they got there, what obstacles they overcame, an overview of their education and career journey, and sharing resources that may benefit the girls attending. Additional follow-up opportunities may include a mentor program where girls will be matched with professional women to gain more insight into a specific career through the following ways: College visits, financing education, workplace visits, shadow days, internships, informational interviews, volunteering. According to last year’s evaluations, this is their favourite part of the conference!!
