Through skill-building workshops and events, the Future 5 Program helps young girls grow into Canada’s next generation of leaders.
The Famous 5 Foundation, in partnership with GirlPower, holds workshops for girls ages 7 to 10 aimed at providing them with tools and strategies for developing a strong sense of self, thereby giving them the foundation to be true to themselves and to uncover their leadership potential. The girls are also reminded of the inspirational story of the Famous Five while they enjoy a legendary “pink tea” hosted by Famous 5 volunteers.

Power of you
Launched in April of 2015, The Famous 5 Foundation partnered with Young Women of Power to deliver a two-day conference each spring for girls ages 12 to 18. The conference aims to build confidence through active group sessions on personal safety, inner beauty, and celebrating female diversity and greatness, so girls know that they are more than enough.
The Young Women of Power event embodies the mandate of the Famous 5 Foundation, which is to inspire Canadian women and girls to embark on their own ‘acts of courage’ by becoming leaders of change and positively impacting the communities they live in. In 2015, we introduced a Famous Five Leadership Track that encourages participants to focus on their strengths and leadership qualities so that they will feel empowered to pursue their passions and achieve anything they want.
Details for next year's conference will be released in early 2018. To learn more about Young Women of Power, visit http://www.ywop.ca/.
