Girl power


 

Improving our world one girl at a time

Girl Power is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit prevention and intervention social change program that promotes positive behavior, enhances social skills and improves academic performance in at-risk girls 11 - 17. Established in 2000 by the World Literacy Crusade (WLC) of Florida - an international, non-profit, community literacy program - Girl Power encourages young girls to build confidence, competence and pride within themselves. 

We also provide workshops and materials that inform girls about the risk and consequences associated with substance abuse, low self-esteem, lack of education and more.

The Woman behind the Power

Thema Campbell is the President and Chief Executive Officer of Girl Power.

She is a champion, an expert in children’s issues and a true advocate for young girls.

Thema’s passion for assisting those in need came from her grandmother, Hattie Skinner Bacon (Mama Hattie), who opened up her small home to family, friends and strangers in need. Most of all Mama Hattie's home served as a safe haven for children who were lost and trying to find their place in this world. Thema founded Girl Power on this same principle. She saw that the same challenges that faced young girls of yesteryear are still prevalent in the young lives of girls today, and girl power opens new doors for them

GIRL POWER'S 4TH ANNUAL GOSPEL EXPLOSION BRUNCH

November 2016

Girl Power’s Gospel Brunch Explosion took place on November 6, 2016, and once again the Girls’ Choir of Miami Rocked the Temple to say the least. Along with the Girls’ Choir, the event included amazing Miami’s hometown talent: Maryel Epps, Shanita Hunt, LaVie, Karina Iglesias and Girl Power’s singing alumni Jamirah Gause.

It was a day of lively music, laughter, bottomless mimosas and a finger licking brunch catered by Chef Irie Spice. Our host Rabbi Julie Jacobs, who also serves as Cantor at Beth David, welcomed us all in spirit and in song. The entire event was filled with beauty and inspiration. This year's Gospel Brunch exemplified a great plan coming together. Needless to say, this could not have happened without our treasured partners and supporters.

If you missed this year’s gospel brunch, I urge you not to miss the next one. We look forward to seeing you at Girl Power’s signature “Gospel Brunch Explosion” in November of 2017, at the Beth David. Have a blessed and safe holiday season! The Board members and entire staff of Girl Power wish you a healthy and prosperous new year!
