Who Are We?

Girls Rule! is a goal driven organization whose mission is to empower and aid in the self development of young ladies, ages 7 – 18 who reside in urban communities.  Learn more about our beliefs and values.

The Girls Rule! Program….

Promotes inter-generational relationships between women and girls, explores career pathways, enhances esteem and offers girls pathways to better decision making.  This “girl driven” program also promotes participation in physical activities that will impact the health and well-being of our girls.  Girls Rule! provides access to coaching, engaging and fun facilitator led workshops. The program enables young ladies to hone their leadership, math, science, presentation and communication skills while working in peer led teams. Participants experience organized field trips to local businesses where they observe successful professionals that work in a variety of industries and fields.

Blend OUT or Blend IN?
Who Do You Want to Become?

Girls Rule! establishes a safe environment for girls to “blend-out” rather than to “blend-in” as they discover the type of women they would like to become. Program components introduce multiple processes that enable girls to enhance the quality of their own lives. Participants are provided with access to “engaging girl-centric” activities that confront subtle societal messages about their value and potential.  The Program supplies the tools for young girls to become confident leaders of tomorrow through the development of consistent programming. They develop skill sets in the areas of:
Exploration of Career Pathways
Economic Literacy
Environmental Issues
Health and Well-being and;
Violence Prevention 

Girls Rule! programming includes:
