Challenge

"More than half of teen girls feel pressure to be perfect." "3 in 4 teen girls worry about failing" "Between ages 8 and 14, girls' confidence levels drop by 30%." - YPULSE, 2018. Given the majority of mental health problems (such as depression, anxiety, eating disorders, substance abuse, and schizophrenia) start in adolescence, it's vital that young people experience safe, supportive, social environments that accept them just as they are.

Solution

Our programs provide an emotional and physical safe space for girls and gender non-conforming youth. Our programs encourage safe risk-taking, stepping out of their comfort zones, leadership and getting comfortable making mistakes. Through skateboarding, science, art, and more we are a space for every "type" of girl to find their voice and feel confident just as they are. Our coaches are accessible role models who provide guidance and support to the next generation of fearless leaders.

Long-Term Impact

"Feeling emotionally safe in an environment helps adolescents to also feel safe in other contexts where they might not experience as much emotional support. It strengthens their resilience." -Marieke Bos, Asst. Professor, Project Fearless 2021 Impact Report Kids move away from perfectionist pressure and lead a life of confidence as they face new experiences, and adversaries. We equip girls to succeed in any aspect of their lives.
