Everyday 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 starting, Girls Are Powerful has been aggressively working to do just that – empower girls and inspire them to embrace their unique qualities.
Girls Are Powerful goal is to create a community of Empowered Girls through our key program initatives: Community Workshops, Youth Conference, Mother-Daughter Events, Girl Connect Activities and Community and Special Events.
Our community workshops
Our community workshop series encourages all girls to love and celebrate their personal power through group discussion, role-playing, and other related activities; and is designed to define and enhance the character of girls.
Our conference is designed to bring girls along with their caregivers together for a day of speakers, workshops and activities focused on supporting their personal and educational growth and empowerment.
Our Mother-Daughter events are designed to strengthen the relationships between mothers and daughters through quality time and empowerment activities.
Girl Connect Events
Our Girl Connect events provide girls with additional opportunities to discover, own and celebrate their power through a multitude of experiences that are provided through strong partnerships with organizations and women in the community.
A welcoming space for parents and caregivers to talk openly about topics and issues affecting girls today. Our goal is to give parents and caregivers the skills they need to support and empower each other to help ALL girls along their adolescent journey.
The Power of a Girl magazine is our latest accomplishment which showcases the impact that Girls Are Powerful has had and continues to have on eight participants’ lives, self-esteem, and well-being. These young ladies crafted the copy for their magazine features, identified inspirational quotes, and participated in a photoshoot.
