Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Mayor Carlo DeMaria is pleased to announce the City of Everett, Everett Police and Fire Departments in collaboration with the Massachusetts State Police, State Police Association for Massachusetts and Tufts University Department of Public Safety the second annual G.I.R.L.S. Day will take place on Saturday, March 25 from 10am to 3pm at the Recreation Center, 47 Elm Street.

G.I.R.L.S. stands for Grit, Intelligence, Resilience, Leadership and Strength. Through this event, we hope to empower Everett youth girls from ages 5 to 14 to explore these typically male-dominated careers as options for them too.

Young women will participate in activities like obstacle courses, mock crime scene investigations, visits to the fire house, physical exercises with state police, finger printing and so much more.

This event was started by Everett’s Director of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Cathy Draine in collaboration with the Massachusetts State Police. It has now become an annual event in Everett as part of the City’s celebration of Women’s History Month.

Residents are encouraged to register an interested participant between the ages of 5 and 14 by visiting cityofeverett.com/events/girls-day and scrolling down to the “Register Now” section.

If you are unsure if you are able to attend, registrations will be accepted on the day of the event. However, we encourage those who are planning to attend to register in advance.
