Erindale Secondary School will host 100 female students on Feb. 9. for the inaugural Girls Night In, an evening of wellness and leadership training workshops to empower and inspire young women. Mississauga Mayor Bonnie Crombie will deliver a keynote speech to share inspirational stories of overcoming challenges through her experiences as a woman in politics.
"Empowering adolescent students at a young age allows students to discover the value of believing in themselves and striving to become leaders within our own school community", says Sandra Trupp, principal of Erindale Secondary School. "These skills will also help students to become confident when pursuing their future academic and professional goals."
The purpose of the project is to inspire females between ages 14-21 to live a goal-driven healthy lifestyle and become leaders of change within their communities. Girls Night In will allow students to engage with mentors and aims to inspire students to be the leaders of positive change.
Dinner has been generously provided by community partners Arbonne, Beauty Counter, Estée Lauder, Lululemon, Palma Pasta, Panera Bread, Pita Pit, Peel Regional Police, South Common Community Centre, Starbucks and Sweet Legs Elyse.
The event will take place on Feb. 9 from 3 to 7 p.m. at Erindale Secondary School located at 2021 Dundas St. W. in Mississauga.
