We help girls build leadership, strong self-confidence and bright futures.
The 6th Annual BBB Role Model Awards Reception was
Girls Rule won 1st Place for the Phoenix Business Journal’s Charity Contest
and won the $10,000 grant from Bank of Arizona.
Why does the Girls Rule Foundation focus on developing, mentoring and educating teen girls? Arizona is one of the worst states to be a girl through statistics like; dropouts, sex trafficking, teen pregnancy, self-harm, and suicide. We find that disempowered girls often become disempowered women, and our commitment is that empowered girls become empowered women who contribute economically, intellectually, academically, and emotionally in our communities, country, and the world. We find that empowerment and leadership skills are being taught, on average, 20 years too late for girls. We must educate and equip girls with these crucial skills starting at age 12, not 32 if we want more girls to become empowered, successful women and leaders.
Because girls often do not get these skills until later in life it is harder to navigate through the pressures, distractions, addictions, temptations, and media that pull on all girls.
The 7 core things that “pull on” EVERY tween/teen girl in our country:
Suicide for girls is at the highest in 40 years along with many other staggering statistics like sex trafficking, phone addiction, drugs, dropouts and teen pregnancy (7100 teen pregnancies in AZ in 2016 alone (1 million nationwide in 2016)). We all know that self-esteem cannot be medicated, and we also know that when girls are equipped with social, emotional, and leadership skill sets that they can build strong self-esteem and powerful skill sets to better navigate their teen years to become successful adults. We believe in girls and believe they have fierce, unlimited potential and we want to help all girls to know their worth and valuable place in the world.
