Start A School Starfish CLub
A Starfish Club at your school is a great way to learn more about gender equity issues in Canada and The Gambia. Our clubs identify issues and create service projects to deepen their understanding and improve our world.
Volunteering is a wonderful way for you to get to know our organization here in Canada and our partner in The Gambia. Our approach is to design a learning experience that allows you to share your passion with our girls while they share their love of learning, service and knowledge with you. Volunteer opportunities range from cultural exchanges to helping us arrange our annual dinner or speaker series!
