Empower girls from a young age to have the confidence, creativity and compassion through hands on learning, increased civic awareness and community outreach through our monthly workshops to inspire our next generation of leaders.
Focus on the 3 C’s Confidence, Creativity and Compassion
Confidence: It is critical that we teach girls at a young age to grow that voice from within as a positive and encouraging voice, and not to be scared to take on challenges and try new things. The more they learn and practice a skill, the more confident they will become. The more compassion and acceptance they have for those around them, the more confident they will become. We want to teach our girls that they can be anything they want to be and do anything they want to do – if they are willing to put the work in and trust they can do it. Studies show girls self esteem drops 3.5 times more than boys from elementary school to high school, creating a confidence gap early* - our goal is to close that gap!
"The history of the world is filled with men who rose to leadership, by sheer force of self- confidence, bravery and tenacity." - Gandhi
Creativity: Being creative and thinking outside of the box gives girls actual experience of expressing themselves individually. Being creative takes bravery and problem solving skills. When a Leader is creative, they are resourceful, fun and inspirational. We want to give our girls the experience and confidence to be creative!
“Creativity is inventing, experimenting, growing, taking risks, breaking rules, making mistakes and having fun.” – Mary Lou Cook
Compassion: Compassion is a critical aspect to empathy, understanding and acceptance of others. It makes girls more sensitive to their surroundings and eager to become more educated about and involved in their community. We want our girls to be compassionate, humble and socially aware Leaders.
