The newly located Fernie Women’s Centre is encouraging girls to come to their drop in to talk about this issues and problems and just have fun.

Mondays are for girls in grades seven and eight. Wednesdays are for girls in grades nine and up. Both groups run from 3:30-5 p.m.

“Drop ins are a safe, respectful, and fun place to hang out,” said Lauren Fox from the centre.

“Snacks are provided and always yummy! Come socialize, talk about what is important to you, get answers to all your questions and do lots of fun and crazy activities. We do things like baking, cooking, Fernie fieldtrips, art projects, spa days and have guest speakers! If you want to cover a topic or do a certain activity just let us know and we will do our best to make it happen.”

All girls are welcome. All you have to do is show up and bring a friend if you want.

The Women’s Centre will also be offering a free education and support group to parents of teens in Fernie. This group is for parents with children in grades seven to 12.

“It is an opportunity for parents with children who are at similar ages and stages to support and learn from one another,” said Fox. “It will be a safe and confidential space for parents to talk about issues they are facing raising their children.”

It will run for five weeks from November 8 to December 6 from 7 p.m to 9 p.m.

To sign up, please call the Fernie Women’s Centre. There is limited space and availability is on a first come, first serve basis. Call 250-423-4687.

 

The Women’s Centre is now located in the Annex behind the Credit Union. We are in a maroon house at 1592 10th Ave. If you have any questions call 250-423-4687 and ask for Lauren or Vanessa.
