Is it educational AND fun?

See these testimonials from Rangers who have come to AGP more than once.
"If I would tell one thing to a parent it would be that a girl learns more at the five days at AGP then she ever will in a year of school. I personally have seen more growth at AGP than among my fellow classmates at school throughout the year. Totally worth missing two days of school. Also, there is time to do homework, so their daughter shouldn't fall behind." - KL

"It seems like a "snobby" activity. My first year, I almost didn't go. I went on a scholarship from provincial council and a whim. But AGP is BY FAR my favourite event, and I've even been to Ecuador with GGC. My word of advice is: just go. It's worth missing the school. It's worth risking your weekend for some "boring government simulation". But oh my gosh, AGP is SO much more than that." –RH (from Saskatchewan)"

WARNING:  Spots fill fast, and applications are accepted on a first come, first served basis so please do not delay.  We encourage a mix of new and returning girls. All successful applicants receive an information package by February 2020.

 

*Registration is heavily subsidized by Alberta Council (more than half), so no further financial assistance is available from Provincial Council.  Further subsidy assistance may be available from Units, District and/or Area Councils.
