GIRLS ARE POWERFUL
Founded in 2013, Girls Are Powerful is the brainchild of Shawntan Howell, who was frustrated with the lack of cultural appropriateness options available in the Minneapolis–St. Paul area to help girls build healthy self-esteem and awareness of self and others. With her eyes set on a brighter future, she began planning and organizing a movement to teach girls to own their power and embrace their individuality through affirmations, self-reflection, and mutual support.

Everyone is WELCOME!
Mother-Daughter events focus on the most vital relationship in the development of girls into strong women through quality time and dual empowerment activities. These events are for all caretakers—regardless of age or relation—and the special young lady in their lives.
You don’t have to be a celebrity or CEO to make an impact in girls’ lives—anyone can do it! Volunteering with GRP takes on many forms, from sharing your time and talents with the girls to offering your professional and administrative services to the organization. Join us today!
