Here’s how we are supporting our community during COVID-19
For the first time in six years, Girls Are Powerful we will not be getting together this spring to teach our girls to embrace their uniqueness and tap into their power.
This, however, is an important moment for Girls Are Powerful. Our message applies to the community at large right now: we all need to be reminded of our strength, determination, confidence, intelligence, beauty and power. Everybody needs to focus on self-care and wellness now so that when physical distancing ends, we will be ready. We will be mentally and physically strong enough to help our community recover and rebuild.
To help our community embrace its power, Girls Are Powerful is partnering with the Minnesota Department of Health to share our message and important information about COVID-19.
As part of this partnership, Girls Are Powerful is launching a communication and wellness campaign focused on community building through empowerment, self care and wellness activities. Through this campaign we will offer tips, tools and practices to help us stay grounded and focus on well-being during this difficult time.
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.
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!
