A Compilation of Research on Rural Girls' and Young Women's Issues

1 February 2012



This review is part of a larger project, which shines light on the potential of rural girls and young women to contribute to community development. The project engages youth and rural organizations to advance the leadership and community involvement of rural young women. Project activities include a partnership with four rural organizations to deliver leadership programs with female youth; regional meetings of girls program practitioners in the Atlantic and Prairie regions; webinars on topics related to rural young women's empowerment; and another publication gathering successful practices and perspectives of rural communities working for girls and young women's well-being and empowerment across Canada.
