Our Why:

Our movement and our 4 educational programs are aimed to give girls the greatest chances of success in their schooling, their careers, their dreams and their lives. Our programs focus on teaching girls the social, emotional, and leadership skill sets they need so that they can become our next generation of leaders and world changers. Self-esteem cannot be medicated. Self-esteem is the foundational element that heavily influences our 4 C’s: choice making, communication, community/relationships, and cash/income. Let’s help our girls succeed. Because of our work our goal is to raise the number of girls going to college, raise the number of girls in leadership positions, raise girls self-esteem and value of themselves, along with lowering self-harm and suicide rates and lowering teen pregnancy rates. Disempowered girls often become disempowered women, and our commitment is that empowered girls become empowered women who become leaders and contributors in our communities, country and the world.

 

Why does Girls Rule Foundation focus on developing, empowering and educating teen girls?
Not just because Arizona is the 3rd worst state to be a girl (read statistics here), but because
7 core things that “pull on” EVERY girl:

1. Peer pressure
2. Media messages of perfection & beauty
3. Puberty and early puberty
4. Suicide and self-harm is happening around them
5. Teen Pregnancy is happening around them
6. Drugs/drinking is happening around them
7. Cell phones and electronics addictions and dependency

Our Program’s Impact:
We educate and equip thousands of girls to succeed through our 4 programs: our after-school club, our Annual Mentoring & Awards program, our Mother-Daughter Summits and our Summer Camp. Our programs focus on teaching girls the 3 pieces of The Foundation of Success:  1. how to build a greatness mindset 2. how to build strong self-esteem  3. how to use our 12 leadership principles in their lives.
These 3 pieces are so important because they heavily influence our 4 C’s: choice making, communication, community/relationships, and cash/income. Let’s help our girls succeed. Because of our work we want to raise the number of girls going to college, raise the number of girls in leadership positions, raise girls self-esteem and value of themselves, along with lowering self-harm and suicide rates and lowering teen pregnancy rates. We focus on girls because research shows that a single-gender environment builds connectedness, focus and confidence with attendees.

“Over the past 2 years I have met my best friend, done things I don’t often get a chance to do, started my own photography business and have held a school program all inspired by Girls Rule. Getting that camp scholarship and going to camp changed my life and others around me. All of my success in the last 2 years is because of you. I will carry this knowledge with me for the rest of my life.” Maddy, age 12

 

Our Social Impact:

In addition to our programs we reach people electronically – through our newsletter, our social media, and our Spread Love, Not Hate Challenge. We reach approximately 10,000 people per month. We want girls to know their worth, know themselves, know their greatness and know their valuable place in the world as leaders and world changers.

 

Our Tribe:
We are made up of men and women who stand for girls and women and want to see them thrive. We are made up of financial supporters, sponsors, volunteers, board members, committee members and advocates who help our organization grow to reach more girls.
It takes a village so join us!
