What is CGIT?

Canadian Girls In Training (CGIT) is a program for girls between the ages of 12 and 17. The aim of CGIT, as printed in the 1980 Handbook for Leaders, is to provide opportunities for teenage girls and their leaders to grow together in Christian community as persons realizing their self-worth in relationship with God, discovering life’s meaning through Jesus Christ’s life and teachings, learning to be open and trusting in relationships, responding with love to the needs of others.

So what does this mean for you, now, in 2013? It means that CGIT is a place you can have fun and be yourself. It’s a place you can learn, grow and share with girls your own age. And, to quote the CGIT Purpose; “Become the girl God would have me be”.

What’s the CGIT Purpose?

The CGIT Purpose is said at the beginning of every meeting, and it is a motto that each CGIT girl tries to live by. The CGIT Purpose goes like this:

As a Canadian Girl in Training
Under the leadership of Jesus
It is my purpose to

Cherish health

Seek truth

Know God

Serve others

And thus, with His help,
Become the girl God would have me be.
