As part of our home school project recently, my daughter and I thought it would be a great deal of fun and educational to interview some fabulous organizations in our local community. We are excited to bring this interview to you as a way to give back and share with you what we learned and to help raise awareness for Girls Inc.
Girls Inc. is a non-profit organization that is dedicated to serving and helping girls. Inspiring all girls to be strong, smart and bold. Providing more than 138,000 girls across the U.S. and Canada with life-changing experiences and real solutions to the unique issues girls face.
We had a great time getting to know more about how Girls Inc. specifically is helping our girls. Certainly we had lots in common and clearly share a passion for helping our girls succeed today and in the future.

As an extra bonus I wanted to also share with you 6 Practices for Helping Raise Self-Esteem in our Girls.
As a mom, educator, coach, author and speaker, I am passionate about helping our youth succeed and I believe that when we help our girls experience higher levels of self-esteem, we are indeed helping them to have a positive relationship with themselves and others. We are helping to build and nourish a healthy foundation that will equip them to succeed in life and in their chosen career. Helping them blossom and flourish. Helping them to trust in themselves and believe that they are worthy of happiness and making progress in life towards the things they care about.
So as parents, educators, and leaders what can we do help raise our girls self-esteem?
Here are 6 basic practices for raising self-esteem in our girls.
6 A’s – Basic Practices for Helping Raise a Girl’s Self-esteem
Practicing self-awareness on a daily basis is about choosing to live consciously. By checking in and inquiring with ourselves about how we are showing up in the world.
Self-acceptance. Helping our girls learn how to accept themselves is important. Accepting all of who they are and embracing their lightness and all the parts of themselves and even the parts they dislike.
Owning their abilities and being able to respond as autonomous human beings.
Being authentic and speaking up and out for what is true for them. Having the courage to share their views and opinions. Sharing their unique voices with the world.
Alignment of their values, beliefs and strengths. Being in integrity with who they are.
A purposeful intent to direct their thoughts and behaviors in the direction of their goals and dreams. Being intentional about who they are becoming and what they aim for in life.
Thank you Girls Inc. for a wonderful interview. We hope this adds value to you and helps to spread awareness of all you do to help and support our girls. Please feel free to share your comments below and tell us what you learned?
