 What is the GreenUP Girl's Climate Leadership Program?

When women and girls are empowered, we support a better life for all. This program offers girl-identified youth (aged 11-13) the chance to build the skills and confidence needed to become climate leaders! 

Led by incredible woman who are at the forefront of the local climate movement, this leadership program will include a focus on:  

  • Green Building, in partnership with the Endeavour Centre
  • Food Security, in partnership with Nourish
  • Cycling Skills, in partnership with B!KE and AST Ptbo (Heads up! We are hoping to cycle to destinations together. Equipment can be provided for all participants.)
  • Climate Adaptation, in partnership with Ecology Park
  • Water Protection, in partnership with Wonders of Water 

This unique opportunity is made possible with a grant from the Fund for Gender Equality. The Fund for Gender Equality is supported by a collaboration between Community Foundations of Canada, the Community Foundation of Greater Peterborough, and the Equality Fund, with support from the Government of Canada.
