Founded in 2013, Girls Are Powerful was formed as the result of the vision of Shawntan Howell who wanted to encourage girls to embrace and celebrate their Power of being Beautiful, Unique, Smart, Confident and Determined. This desire started after a conversation with her daughter on self-esteem and self-worth. She wanted to start a personal transformation movement that would engage and empower girls to embrace their unique individuality through affirmations, self-reflection, and positive self-talk. Her work teaches girls how to own their power, stand in their power and not give away their power.
Here are our accomplishments for 2018.

Our volunteers add extra significance by sharing their talents and time with the people who attend our events and workshops and to those who are not familiar with GRP. They also create an impact in the lives of young girls.
