To empower girls and their families to succeed in order to protect, restore and preserve the family unit.
More Programs. More Togetherness.
The more Girl Power does… The more our girls enjoy and embrace life.
Girl Power takes the needs and desires of every girl serious so that we can provide programs and activities that create healthy, smart, strong and active girls. Using the "The Girls Report: What We Know & Need to Know about Growing Up Female" (commissioned by National Council for Research on Women) as a guide – along with input from parents, students, and community leaders – the following Girl Power programs were developed to empower young girls to get more out of life.
