Love. Create. Share.
Empower provides young girls with the tools they need to build healthy and lasting friendships. We work with girls to help them rise up beyond their circumstances, become role models in their communities, and learn how to recognize abuse and exploitation.
Empower was written so that girls can take the obstacles, hardships and pressures that are so often placed upon them and turn them into something good. It teaches them to turn challenges into learning experiences, enabling them to emerge stronger and better equipped for the world that they face. In fact, this is why Empower was created in the first place: to provide girls a community in which they learn how to embrace and reveal their inner beauty.
The goal is not to prepare girls for a problem-free world, but to prepare them for a problem-filled world for which they have the ability to conquer. Topics about setting goals allow girls to dream about their futures, while also giving them resources to be practical about their dreams and the choices they will make. What an amazing difference they can make in the world with the skills to tackle the challenges and obstacles that come their way.
The goal of this curriculum is impact. It is our hope that Empower will provide young girls with the tools and knowledge to protect themselves, supportive communities, and the realization of their potential. Girls will emerge from Empower as leading young women in their schools and communities and will inspire other girls to make a positive difference. Remind the girls that their impact will be only as big, positive, and as effective as they dream it to be. Their potential to make a positive impact upon families, schools and communities is real and possible.
