Project Progress – Head Start for Young Women In Grand Forks

The Head Start for Young Women pilot project began in the fall of 2013 when Councillor Cher Wyers was informed that Grand Forks had been chosen as one of the communities selected by the Federation of Canadian Municipalities. After two information sessions, a group of six girls and three mentors was created.

Sarah Dorgelo, Kayla Hahn, Kyra Hogan, Carly Kruger, Clarissa Palek and Jaclyn Salter were given the task of creating a project that would increase the numbers of young women participating in local government. Led by Cher Wyers and mentored by Teresa Taylor and Myrna Logan (later by Wendy McCulloch and Roxanne Shepherd), they eventually developed the Project Progress Conference.

The registration for the Project Progress Conference is now FREE with the deadline for registration being tomorrow, Sept 30th, 2014 at 4:00pm
