Girls in the Know was developed in 2016 as part of the Junior League of Edmonton’s (JLE) new impact area of girls’ self-esteem and mental health. It is a community event, hosted for the members of Big Brothers Big Sisters’ ‘GoGirls!’ series. 80-100 girls join the members of JLE for an evening of activities that aid them in building both mental and physical confidence.
Girls in the Know fills a vital and recognized gap in programming for girls in the Edmonton area. It also strengthens our relationships with community organizations and provides experiences for girls that help reinforce our mission of girls’ self-esteem and mental health, while providing leadership opportunities for JLE members.
