STEP proudly supports the Impact Society and the youth programs they're bringing to the Fort St. John community.
Last Tuesday, about 70 teenage girls from various First Nations around Northeastern B.C. gathered for the Young Women of Power Workshop, which was the first type of program aimed at this group. Motivational speaker Alison Springer was brought in to talk to the girls about experiences she'd had growing up as a teenager. Springer hopes to instill in [the girls] "a healthy sense of female pride" and break any negative cycles that have been passed on from generation to generation.
