How We Help

We inspire girls to build confidence and make intentional decisions, while fostering care and compassion for self and others.

Why It Matters
Studies show that by adolescence, girls’ confidence drops about twice as much as boys’. Friendships become more complicated and challenging; girls’ perception of their academic ability declines; the likelihood of anxiety and depression increases; and participation in physical activity plummets.
Stressors related to COVID-19 have undoubtedly affected girls, between social isolation, anxiety and more limited opportunities for physical activity.
Girls need us now more than ever.
We believe that EVERY GIRL is inherently full of POWER and POTENTIAL. By knowing they are the leaders of their lives, these are the girls who will change the world.
