G Day For Girls - Nov 2nd, 2014



The first GDay was held in April, 2014,  and the upcoming G Day event will be on November 2nd, 2014 at the UBC Chan Centre For The Performing Arts. 

About:

G Day is a global social movement anchored by day-long events that celebrate and empower girls aged 10-12 as they transition into adolescence. We seek to resurrect, modernize and share the wisdom and mystery that were once passed down from generation to generation.
G Day honours this rite of passage by tapping into our collective sense of curiosity, bravery and  excitement at the amazing changes taking place. Our goal is to create a space where girls can come together and explore what makes them unique as individuals as well as what connects them to one another.
