Many studies have shown that young girls can lose a lot of confidence as they go through their teen years. Because of this, we need to find ways to help girls see what their future could look like and inspire them to believe 'Yes I Can'.

“Many studies have shown that young girls can lose a lot of confidence as they go through their teen years. Because of this, we need to find ways to help girls see what their future could look like,” said Dana Driedger, Executive Director, the Nellie McClung Foundation. “All too often, we feature mature women’s success. With this campaign, we want to show girls that success isn’t something that has to come later in life. These young women are already doing amazing things from right here in Manitoba.”

The Nellie McClung Foundation’s mission is to empower women and girls to become leaders in Manitoba.
