Activating Communities on Alcohol

Alcohol & Girls: Making Prevention A Priority

Funding Opportunity to Support Development of New Programming for Girls

Within British Columbia, there is increasing recognition at the local and provincial level that public action to address the issue of harms associated with excessive alcohol consumption among young girls is needed, along with more youth and community-led programming opportunities.

The purpose of this one-time $25,000 funding is to support the community sector to create ways to tailor youth programming specifically to young girls (grades 7-12) with the goal of increasing resilience and reducing harmful drinking behaviours.
