Girls ages 5 to 14 are invited to explore careers in public safety


  Mayor Carlo DeMaria is pleased to announce that the City of Everett has partnered with Alliance Security, the Everett Fire Department, the Everett Police Department, the Massachusetts State Police, the State Police Association for Massachusetts and Tufts University’s Department of Public Safety to host the third annual G.I.R.L.S. Day on Saturday, April 27 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Everett Recreation Center (47 Elm St.).

G.I.R.L.S. stands for Grit, Intelligence, Resilience, Leadership and Strength. Through this event, girls from ages five to 14 will be empowered to explore careers in public safety, which have been traditionally male-dominated. Young women will participate in activities like obstacle courses, mock crime scene investigations, visits to the fire house, physical exercises with state police, fingerprinting and so much more.

Residents are encouraged to register an interested participant between the ages of five and 14 by visiting cityofeverett.com/events/girls-day-2024 and scrolling down to the “Register Now” section. Check-in begins at 9 a.m.
