As a 501c3 we are working to increase SEL and leadership education in communities, families and schools. 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 better navigate their teen years to become successful adults. At Girls Rule Foundation we are on a mission to educate and empower girls ages 12-18 with self-esteem skills, financial literacy skills and leadership skills. It is not enough to HOPE that girls learn these skills. It’s not enough to HOPE girls will turn out as strong leaders. It’s not enough to HOPE girl statistics will magically lower. If we want strong girls who are ready to lead communities, healthy families, large businesses, small companies, and world problems in the future we must equip them so they have those tools on their tool belt.
We found that the root cause of our growing negative statistics is a lack of resiliency training in the teen years. To become resilient we must teach SEL skills. Girls need this training more than ever because they are coping with pressures and situations never seen before in history! Currently, females learn these skills usually around the age of 32, instead of 12, and that is 20 Years. Too. Late. It is not ok to “hope” that girls learn these important skills “along the way”. We must be intentional in teaching these tools and skillsets to girls so they can navigate around the 7 “derailers”, and learn to create empowered, successful and healthy lives. Our SEL curriculum through our 4 programs empowers girls in three areas: self-esteem skills, leadership skills and financial/career skills. We believe that girls have a beautiful and powerful place in the world and we are here to support them through our programs, and online movement.
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, and committee members who help our organization grow to impact more girls to reach their greatest potential. It takes a village. You can get involved a few different ways: by attending one of our 4 programs, be on our volunteer team, apply to be on a committee or board, read our wish list or help us fundraise in simple ways.
“Empowered girls become empowered women who change the world”.
Our #girlschangetheworld movement shares empowering stories of amazing girls and women. It is all about helping girls know their valuable place in the world as leaders and world-changers.
