The Ophelia Project begun in 2015 was a fantastic success. The community outpouring from local sponsors, radio. television and newspaper outlets gave this inaugural event the type of powerful springboard envisioned by event founder Brianna Gates. Everyone is excited for the upcoming event as the gathering continues to build after such a solid beginning.
There is no force on earth more full of hope and optimism than the spirit of a young girl. She sees the world with wide-eyed wonder and in her gaze all things are possible. It is the young girl who starts her own 'save the spotted owl' campaign, explores her backyard like it's a lab of wonder or sets out to stage her own production of Annie starring the neighborhood kids. They are a unique tapestry of individuals, as varied as they are charming. The inagural Ophelia Project gave these fantastic girls a new look on their future by many who have been there just a few years before (as seen in the photos shown below from the 2015 event).

But middle school is too often the great divide, a passage where hopeful girls become troubled teens. A playground where self-worth can plummet, academics can become less important than how many followers one has on Twitter, and self-expression becomes too risky; better to follow the crowd than to risk standing out.
The Ophelia Project is designed to be an uplifting, positive and motivational event to assist these future female leaders of the next generation. More than that, it is designed to let them know that there are many who have gone before them, and those attending fully support and understand how difficult and overwhelming life can seem during this time of their lives. It will give them a feeling of support and the knowledge that others have gone before, felt what they feel, and made their lives fantastic!
The project will work hard this year and beyond to make a difference in the lives of deserving young girls from throughout the Halifax area. Today, children are being pressured to grow up faster than ever. It is the hope of The Ophelia Project that through mentoring and positive role models, growing up can be something that is not measured on a calendar, but in the positive growth within.
