Two Moose Jaw elementary schools were visited by a group of mentors and the Moose Jaw Girls Group organizers to spread awareness about the movement called International Day of the Girl, which was held on Wednesday.

The day was created back in 2013 to inspire young women and to show support to others as they get older and pursue their dreams.IMG 2702

"It was really important for them to gain that confidence and to know that [they] themselves can do something, but them together can conquer anything," explained one of the facilitators Angela Sereda. "A lot of it was about giving them the confidence to succeed in any life situation and to respect your peers and everybody else around you."

It was geared towards young ladies who are on their last year of elementary school, but also other classes were able to take part too. 

"Between two schools roughly 40 girls participated and we just thought that Grade 8 was a really great age because it's a transition age," said facilitator Jenn Angus. "It's an age where they can accept more responsibility, they like to take on more responsibility and they're getting ready for high school."

The session began with a presentation and explanation on Day of the Girl and then students separated into groups talking with each Mentor in attendance, giving them a chance to ask questions and hear about the mentor's accomplishments. 

"The big message was to support one another and help each other thrive. One of the big challenges is in order to be equal is to treat each other as equals," added the third facilitator Jocelyn MacLeod. "That was the big thing is... we wanted to show that we had some older female role models, but then to hopefully inspire some role models in each other in the classroom."

The Mentors and Girls Group Organizers visited Sacred Heart and St. Michael's schools, giving young girls an opportunity to meet with role models in their community.
