Thrive: Like a Girl

Because Every Girl Deserves To Thrive!

A Bit About Us

Founded in 2019, Thrive: “Like a Girl” is a youth initiative dedicated to empowerment through capacity-building conversations. What started as a 5-week program for you ages 10-16, has flourished into so much more. Thrive: “Like a Girl” was founded by Nicola Brogan with the support of the Pathy Foundation Fellowship through St. Francis Xavier University.

Thrive: “Like a Girl” launched as a Hamilton, Ontario based initiative one vision: to build the self-esteem and confidence of young girls, nonbinary and gender fluid youth in our community. In just 6 short months, Thrive: “Like a Girl” shifted their entire platform to a virtual basis and expanded their reach to youth across Ontario and Alberta. Today, Thrive: “Like a Girl” offers a variety of workshops, social events and resources to youth up to age 25 to build self-esteem, confidence and ultimately empower the next generation.
