Girls Mentorship & Rite of Passage Programs

Empowering the transition into young womanhood

We acknowledge the privilege & responsibility of BEing on the ancestral, traditional and unceded territories of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and sel̓íl̓witulh (Tsleil-waututh) Nations. Thank you for your teachings of right relationship with this land.

“When girls are given our time and presence to discover who they are, they unfold into the safety of themselves. This wisdom needs to be brought back into our communities - it is time.”

What is Fire & Flower?

Fire & Flower offers in-depth, transformative programs to empower self-identified girls 10-14 in their INCREDIBLE rite of passage into young womanhood. We are reviving ‘the village’ of women supporting girls as they come-of-age. Through mentorship, community, and nature-connection, participants build confidence and pride in becoming young women, discover their personal power, develop resilience to engage their future, and gain valuable friendships.

Fire & Flower is non-binary and LGBTQ2SIAP+ inclusive. We engage girls with a critical eye on gender stereotypes and body image, demonstrate the immense diversity in women, and encourage them to discover and embody their own evolving identities. There is simply no single definition for ‘woman’! We welcome girls & their families as well as volunteers and women-identified mentors to join our Fire & Flower family. We offer weekly programs, spring break and summer camps, and a 6-month formal rite of passage.

Donate to the Movement!

Help ALL girls know their own radiance as they become young women. We are raising funds to help families needing financial assistance. Many parents tell us, “This is just what my daughter needs right now,” but they do not have the financial means to participate. Your donation really makes a difference. Thank you for your generosity.
