One Girl Can provides the professional skills and training necessary for young women to be successful in their career and earn a meaningful living.
Girls growing up in places with high unemployment rates and widespread gender inequality need more then just a university degree to succeed.
One Girl Can provides job readiness training and internship opportunities so girls and young women get a chance to gain real-world experience in their field.
Qualifying students can also receive entrepreneurial training, provided in partnership with UBC’s Sauder School of Business, to help them start their own small business and chart their own path to success.
One Girl Can’s internship program pairs students with businesses in their field of study, giving them real-life work experience, invaluable training, and opportunities to build their confidence and professional network.
The internship program can lead to full-time employment, as participating companies get the benefit of early access to top talent and have an opportunity to hire students after a successful internship.
entrepreneurial training academy
In partnership with the UBC Sauder School of Business, One Girl Can gives graduates the knowledge and support needed to start their own business.
The Entrepreneurial Training Academy is taught by local subject-matter experts and international volunteers specializing in a range of disciplines. This innovative training is a customized program that teaches high school and university students the rudiments of creating small-scale business ventures, and then provides continued mentorship and coaching while the students establish their new businesses.
Entrepreneurial training is vital in regions with high levels of unemployment and economic depression as small businesses are one of the biggest sources of new jobs.
