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.

 

In addition to her duties at Girl Power, Thema is also the executive producer of the annual “It Takes A Village Conference;” she serves as executive board member of the Miami-Dade Youth Crime Task Force; she’s a member of the Liberty City Community Action Agency; and a member of the Sojourner Truth Book Club. She is the former co-host of WMBM’s talk show,For Women by Women; former state director of the Miss Black Florida USA Pageant; former chair and co-chair of the Juvenile Justice Board – Circuit 11; and former member of the Miami Commission on the Status of Women. Also, in 1989 she co-founded Concerned African Women and the New Dimensions in Community Educations Program.

Fueled by Passion

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.​
