A Few Stats:
 We want girls to thrive and we want girls to change the world, not change diapers. We want girls to be become our next generation of leaders, however we must equip them with the right tools, skill sets, education and mentorship so they can stay on track to their big dreams. Here are 5 Statistics that tell us that girls are pulled and distracted by today’s society.

  1. Girls with financial intelligence are more likely to feel a sense of empowerment and success than girls with limited. There’s a direct correlation between how well a woman takes care of herself financially and how well she feels about herself.
  2. Only 19%of the STEM [Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math] workforce is female, but have huge rewards for females.
  3. 50% of 9-year old females and 80% of 10-11 year old females feel self conscience and are on some type of diet. A shocking 81% of 10-year-olds are afraid of being fat.
  4. One million teens ages 13-18 in the USA will become pregnant over the next twelve months.  More than half of them are 17 years old or younger when they have their first pregnancy. Almost half of all teen mothers end up on welfare.
  5. Girls feel distracted or derailed by today’s media, social media, pressure, and boys.
    This information was taken from the US Bureau of Census, surveys conducted by the Center for Women’s Business Research, and data compiled by National Women’s Business Council.


We believe in girls and we believe in their dreams, and we feel that girls are the next generation of leaders. This camp is built on the knowledge that when girls:  love who they are, know their worth, and learn the skill sets that create a healthy, bright future they become unstoppable in their pursuit of their best self and their dreams.
