Fire AND RESILIENCE PROGRAMS

Introducing Girls on Fire, Inc

We believe that every young girl has a spark within.

A spark that, if ignited, can see them change their life, their community and how they view themselves in a profound way.

Girls on Fire delivers evidence-based cultural immersion and fire programs to teenage girls. Our programs are designed to inspire young women to take an active role in building community safety and connection. All while uncovering their own personal confidence and resilience – and the potential of an exciting new career path.

What We Do

Girls on Fire work with schools, fire and emergency services, regional towns, and all kinds of youth-related organisations to introduce girls aged 15 to 19 to fire, emergency and disaster management skills.

Our programs combine practical frontline emergency experience with evidence-based Australasia-specific and international research. We offer one-day and residential fire camps, cultural inclusion programs, virtual programs, advocacy and community engagement services, and more.

Fire Camps

As the flagship of our girls fire training, our single day and multi-day camps give girls aged 15 to 19 the opportunity to experience life on the emergency services frontline.

School Programs

Girls on Fire school programs can help soon-to-be school leavers consider fire and emergency service careers and they introduce meaningful volunteer pathways at school and beyond.

Volunteering

Girls on Fire is reliant on fire camp volunteers, youth mentors, general support volunteers and the goodwill of returning campers to make each day at Girls on Fire HQ a successful one.

DEVELOPMENT AND PERSONAL GROWTH

What you see, you can achieve

At Girls on Fire, we believe young women that are confident in themselves,
and their aspirations are our future leaders and change agents of tomorrow.
That confidence begins with visibility and representation.

We deliver programs designed and run by women, Indigenous, and culturally diverse people of all ages.

Through walking the walk, we drive greater participation from female, Indigenous and LGBT communities in firefighting and disaster management, all by fostering engagement at the youth level.
