September is Big Brothers Big Sisters Month and Coquitlam Centre is joining forces with the local organization to encourage girls to “BeYou”. Every Saturday in September has been “BeYou Saturdays” at Coquitlam Centre. From 12:00pm to 4:00pm, events and activities encourage girls to celebrate their individuality and realize that they do not need to limit their goals.
BeYou at Coquitlam Centre
All events are free (for all ages) and are designed to provide young females better access to developmental tools that will help increase self-esteem, personal growth, self-worth and empower young women who are coming of age in a media and technology driven time.
