Our programs align with our Dig DEEP model to encourage girls to love and celebrate their unique qualities.
Every day, girls are bombarded with negative images that vie for their self-esteem. Whether through mainstream media, social media networks, or the general undercurrents of society, girls now, more than ever, need to know that they are BEAUTIFUL, UNIQUE, SMART, CONFIDENT, DETERMINED, and POWERFUL. Since 2013, Girls Are Powerful has been aggressively working to do just that – empower girls and inspire them to embrace their unique qualities.
The goal Girls Are Powerful goal is to create a community of Empowered Girls through our key program initiatives:
Discover their Differences
Acknowledge their Essence
Build their Esteem
Embrace their Power
Our Community Workshops encourage all girls to love and celebrate their personal power through group activities designed to develop confidence, self-awareness, and strength of character.
The annual We Are Enough Youth Conference brings girls together to hear from speakers and take part in workshops to support personal and intellectual growth through empowerment.
Mother-Daughter events focus on the most vital relationship in the development of girls into strong women through quality time and family and group empowerment activities.
Offered in collaboration with women and organizations in the community, Girl Connect events give girls access to a multitude of experiences to explore, discover, and see women working and succeeding in their dream jobs.
Focused on enabling coming-of-age girls to give their thoughts a voice through written self-reflection, this Program tasks participants with keeping a journal to give their thoughts words and to practice empowering techniques.
In this group project, girls work with industry professionals to craft copy, plan layouts and design, and execute a photoshoot from both sides of the lens to create a magazine that lifts girls up instead of putting them down.
Parent Circles are an inclusive space where caregivers can talk openly and share skills to become the stewards and mentors of all girls toward the goal of building a generation of empowered women.
