Special to the Independent

Mayor Carlo DeMaria is pleased to announce the City of Everett has partnered with Alliance Security, Everett Fire Department, Everett Police Department, Massachusetts State Police, State Police Association for Massachusetts, and Tufts University 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 Street).

G.I.R.L.S. stands for Grit, Intelligence, Resilience, Leadership and Strength. Through this event, youth girls from ages 5 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, finger printing and so much more.

Residents are encouraged to register an interested participant between the ages of 5 through 14 by visiting and scrolling down to the “Register Now” section. Check-in begins at 9 a.m.
