Brave session for girls, April 1

Brave Global, a one day event for teen girls is being held in Lloydminster on April 1.

Alicia Mcleod, youth and family ministries coordinator with the Salvation Army in Lloydminster says it’s a day of overcoming.

“It’s a day where they get to hear stories of women who have overcome adversity and the different struggles – whether it’s trying to make their way in a world where men have often ruled that.”

The meet-up is for girls 12-18 years and the outline indicates its to empower and encourage teens through games, food, videos and conversations.

Mcleod has been in the role for about 18-months and says once a month they have kids night and then a similar schedule holds for the teens.

The youth coordinator stresses they hope to build a sense of belonging in the young girls and inspire them to succeed.

“What we hope for with Brave is that every girl who comes will go home knowing and feeling that they are loved and valued. And that they have their own place in this world and they do belong.”

Mcleod adds on the dynamic of mentorship and sees the session as allowing participants to meet other women in the community who can walk alongside them.

The Brave event runs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on April 1 at the Salvation Army, Lloydminster.

More information can be obtained by calling 780-875-9166.
