We are a club that works to raise awareness to help empower young girls and women in developing countries in the world. Young girls in these countries are denied the right to go to school, are forced to marry , live in poverty and are denied many human rights just because they're girls. We want to raise awareness about this in the school and the community and encourage people to help. This is a great way to get involved at the Ridge, as we have events planned throughout the year ! Our 2 main events so far are Karaoke night in May and the Take Back the Night walk in December. We are also planning to have a stand at this year's Pink Football game. There are more events to come during the year.

The Smash club is a club where people can play video games while socializing. For those of us who love to play video games, it can feel very isolating not being able to play with other people, so playing together in a competitive multiplayer game (Super Smash Brothers), learning about a new game and meeting new people is a great way to play, especially for grade 9's who are still a bit shy. A casual environment that the Smash club provides allows for less segregation between the grades, as it doesn't matter what your age or grade is when you're playing a game that all can enjoy. If there are enough people who participate, we plan on hosting tournaments in the name of friendly competition and cookies/baked goods (for participants).
