Programs for Female-Identifying Youth

Sometimes being a young, female-identifying person is tough. The t(w)eenage years are a time of uncertainty, big questions and self-discovery. At the BGC we understand the importance of providing open-minded, welcoming and safe spaces for female-identifying youth to feel empowered to be themselves. Our programs are led by passionate and dedicated female staff who encourage youth to push their own boundaries, make new friends and learn new skills.    

Tweeny But Mighty

Tweeny But Mighty is a program for female-identifying youth ages 8 – 12.  Tweeny But Mighty is a fun, supportive, and inclusive space for youth to be on a Friday night. Our program focuses on self-esteem development through friendship, fun, and laughter.

Tweeny But Mighty has moved to Virtual Zoom Meetings.  We will have a 5-10 minute catch-up about the week, and then play a virtual game or a pre-planned activity or craft for the remaining time.

This group is a safe space where female-identifying youth experience belonging, build confidence and foster positive relationships with the other female-identifying youth and staff.
