Girls Legacy Program in Elementary Schools

Leadership can start at an early age. Women have proven their capacity to succeed in all careers. They also have the ability to lead soccer teams, clubs, associations and businesses at all levels. Our leadership program will start girls off on the right foot organizing their own major soccer events in their own schools to prepare girls with the idea to lead sport organizations.

Currently, over 2000 girls in Vancouver elementary schools have participated in our free two month long Girls Leadership Soccer Project. Most of them received a free ball or t-shirt.

Thank you to our generous sponsors Canadian Tire Jump Start, Telus and RBC for donation toward this opportunity.

Girls and women in their community deserve the full attention to thrive with legacy initiatives that can inspire positive forward commitment to health and well being.

Engaging Leaders in Committing to Equity

Why the Women’s World Cup Matters will identify individuals in the best position to approach civic and business leaders in prominent Canadian cities as well as nearby municipalities to initiate measures to increase financial support for girls’ and women’s soccer, advance women’s leadership in the sport, and increase support, through procurement related to the 2015 events, for women’s businesses. The approach will include educational briefing sessions, presentations to boards and organizations, and meet-and-greet events.

 

Help Support our initiatives to inspire change.
