About

We are looking for volunteer mentors to empower young girls to embrace a healthy, active lifestyle!

This group mentoring program encourages physical activity, healthy eating and the development of a positive self-image among girls age 11 - 14.

The Go Girls! Program runs in selected Burnaby, Surrey, Vancouver and Coquitlam schools for girls in grades 6, 7 or 8 for two hours after school (typically 3:00-5:00pm) for 8 sessions. Each term, led by female volunteer mentors between the ages of 19 to 30, incorporates fun and educational activities to stimulate mentor-participant relationship building as well as group discussions about healthy living and emotional, social and cultural issues.

We are currently accepting applications for our Winter Term which runs for 8 weeks from the week of January 15th, 2018 to the week of March 16th, 2018. Mandatory training on January 6th, 2018 or January 13th, 2018.

We encourage applicants to submit applications as soon as possible as we process applications on a first come, first serve basis. Please submit your application for our Fall term no later than December 14th, 2018.
