Middle school can be a difficult transition period for both boys and girls. However, studies have shown, that girls are more likely to struggle during this time, particularly when it comes to self-esteem. And, girls with low self-esteem often make poor choices and engage in negative and potentially life-altering behaviors.
4GIRLS helps equip middle-school girls with the knowledge and tools to help them make good choices in their lives. Through a variety of activities, instruction and mentoring, this program teaches girls to view themselves as inherently powerful, valuable and beautiful. Feedback on the benefits of the program from both the girls and their parents or guardians has been overwhelmingly positive - "Thank you so much for giving me a whole lot of life lessons. This makes me stronger and confident."
When girls are inspired, they get motivated and tend to stretch their goals and challenge themselves, which can lead to accomplishing some extraordinary things. When girls are empowered, they tend to make better life choices, which leads to better life outcomes that benefit not only them, but their future families and communities. This project will inspire and empower approximately 200 middle-school girls, benefitting them directly and benefitting numerous others in their lives indirectly.
