Minerva BC would like to thank the community of Prince George for supporting our Learning to Lead program for Grade 11 girls. Originally scheduled to take place in person in May at UNBC, the adaption to online programming was made possible thanks to the Minerva Northern BC community committee who helped guide our work, along with the countless women leaders from Northern BC who served as mentors, speakers, panelists and den moms for five weeks in May and June.
Special thanks to Melissa Morin, from the SD57 Indigenous Education Department, who offered beautiful opening and closing circles.
The program exceeded our expectations as the amazing young leaders in the program were able to participate in workshops focused on self-discovery, confidence building, leadership development and fun.
Thank you also to Shaw, RBC and Enbridge for supporting our work in Northern BC and believing in the leadership potential of youth. We look forward to being back in your community in 2021!
