The Village Bloggurls is a weekly girls' leadership and media production/literacy program where girls aged 9-13 from within Lotherton work with their mentors aged 13-18 and staff to create a safe and supportive environment.
The girls will develop a sense of ownership and belonging in this group and in their community of Lotherton, which is an under resourced, socially, and geographically isolated neighborhood that exists in a service vacuum away from the larger priority neighbourhood of Lawrence Heights.
Our goal is for the girls and mentors to gain a sense of pride, professional skills and to increase their self-esteem through identifying various forms of violence specific towards women and address these issues by sharing their stories and experiences through critical media analysis and self-represented media production (e.g., podcasts, digital stories, online blog, zine, newsletter etc.) with other girls within their community and beyond.
