GirlSpace: Program Development with YWCA, St. John’s
Friday, Sept. 15, 12-1 p.m.
Department of Gender Studies Speakers’ Series. The Department of Gender Studies Speakers’ Series invites you to a presentation by Jillian Ashick-Stinson, Master of Gender Studies Candidate, Memorial University, titled “GirlSpace: Program Development with YWCA, St. John’s.” YWCA GirlSpace is a YWCA Canada Turning Point Program that aims to reach out to girls with quality programming that reflects the key social issues facing young women today (YWCA Canada website). I will discuss my internship with YWCA St. John’s, where I revamped and rejuvenated of their core Turning Point program, GirlSpace. Reflecting on my time there, I will consider the challenges of both working in a small not-for-profit and updating a nationally created program for a local context.
