the what and the how

  • A girl's self-esteem peaks at age 9.

  • By age 14 girls' confidence levels drop by 30%.

  • Between the ages of 12 and 13 the percentage of girls who say they're not allowed to fail increases by 150%.


We work with girls and women of all ages. But we know our greatest impact is working with 11-18 year old girls and helping them build their Confidence, Courage, and Resilience so they feel empowered to live confidently now and in the future.
