Indigo Girls Kingston was the first branch of Indigo Girls Group.
At IGG Kingston, we offer multiple girls clubs and workshops for elementary through high school levels. We also offer programming options for organizations and communities in the Kingston area. This year we have three girls clubs running and we are hoping to increase our engagement with high schools.
Our programming focuses on providing all self-identified girls with the tools to become empowered, knowledgeable young women. All of our programming is free, adaptable and targeted to the groups we are working with. Contact us to book a program, learn more, or donate!
2021 GIRL'S CLUBS

Kingston Branch Leader
My name is Claire Good, and I am a second-year Concurrent Education student at Queen’s University. This is my second year with Indigo Girls, and I am beyond excited to continue the positive change that I saw first-hand last year. I joined Indigo Girls to be a part of a community that is providing girls the resources to face challenges, a safe space to learn and to create connections between girls. Growing up, I had a support system made up of strong women and as an Indigo Girl, I am able to provide girls in the community a similar environment to grow, learn and be their true selves. To build each other up is the essence of being an Indigo Girl.
