Power of You

The Cause

The Famous 5 Foundation, in conjunction with GirlPower, holds workshops for girls ages 7 to 10 aimed at providing them with tools and strategies for developing a strong sense of self, thereby giving them the foundation to be true to themselves and to uncover their leadership potential. The girls are also reminded of the inspirational story of the Famous Five while they enjoy a legendary “pink tea” hosted by Famous 5 volunteers. Of course no tea is complete without a proper fascinator, prior to the tea, volunteers help the girls design their very own fascinator to wear to the pink tea.

Who Will it Benefit?

GirlPower offers skill-based friendship programs empowering tweens with the skills, language and self-confidence to be better friends and develop healthier friendships. Famous 5 Foundation has been hosting these workshops at the Boys and Girls Club of Calgary for the past few years. Famous 5 Foundation pays the GirlPower facilitator fees in order for girls to attend the workshop - girls that may not otherwise have an opportunity to be empowered through these workshops.
