Girls Take Charge taught me so much about me. 

I thought leadership was something you had to wait to do until you were older to do.  GTC gave me tools to build my confidence and see myself as a leader now. 

I wish all girls could do this!"

Anchor 5

Registration will be on a first come first serve basis.  Last year all programs sold so we encourage early registration.  If your daughter wishes to participate with a friend, please coordinate selecting the same dates and session time prior to registration. 

Who  facilitates Building Her Empire?

We have been teaching online leadership and empowerment skills for over 14 years.  This way of engagement is nothing new to us!  We have mastered how to make these sessions engaging and fun! Just like our in-person session, sessions will be facilitated by educators who have a direct experience in empowering young women.

How does the program differ for high school students?

For high school girls, we will delve deeper into leadership skills.  There was a missed opportunity since COVID for students to participate fully in all clubs and activities to grow and develop much needed leadership and empowerment skills for high school and college.  We will be providing opportunities for high school students to engage with women leaders in a variety of industries so girls can learn more about career choices and areas of study that might be of interest.   Participants will also be emailed a certificate of completion for the leadership program so they can demonstrate to college their dedication and desire to grow and develop their skills even during these challenging times.

"I loved  Building Her Empire! It was so fun to connect  with like minded girls and feel like I was doing something productive but also so fun during  COVID.    I learned so much about myself."   - High School  participant, 11th grade

"I didn't know what to expect    but I had so much fun.  The other girls were so nice.  We had lots of chances to talk  and participate.  I liked learning about my leadership  styles. I also got alot out of  the friendship discussions .    It helped knowing other girls had struggles with that too."
