improving our world, One Girl at a time!
Girl Power takes the needs and desires of every girl seriously so that we can provide programs and activities that create healthy, smart, strong and active girls. Girl Power's programs are developed to empower young girls to get more out of life. 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 risks and consequences associated with substance abuse, low self-esteem, lack of education and more.
Our Program Objectives:
1. Prevent / reduce truancy, academic failure and school suspension among middle school girls.
2. Prevent / reduce the number of middle school girls entering into the juvenile justice system.
3. Improve overall academic performance among program participants.
