Our GIRLS WITH LEADERSHIP program empowers teen girls to achieve their goals, take responsibility for their lives by learning self-directed leadership skills so they can become strong confident young ladies. Girls will learn life skills that often take adults a lifetime to learn. We offer workshops, events, camps and volunteer opportunities for girls in 6th-12th grades.
Leadership Development, Social Media, Body Image, Nutrition & Wellness, Friendships & Peer Pressure, Communication Skills, Decision Making and Role Models. We offer a variety of venues and formats- workshops, events & camps.
Expected Results in participating in Girls With Leadership:
Leadership knowledge – attitude improvement – improved school performance & grades – better decision-making – improved relationships & conflict resolution & Confidence building.
Our Girls With Leadership workshops and events are offered for girls in grades 6th-12th. This year we will run several workshop series for our middle school aged girls (6th-8th grades) and hold monthly Volunteer Meetings for our High School girls (9th-12th grades).
High School (9th-12th)
Each month our meeting will focus on these 4 areas:
These meetings will be about how we can Give Back to our community and to those in need while doing something meaningful and earn community service hours for NHS, Bright Futures, etc. Girls will earn hours for attendance of the meetings and any work they do to support us on the specific Community Service Project we are working on.
In addition, girls will learn about our upcoming events, workshops or camps that we need Volunteers and Mentors for and each month one of our goals will be to help the girls grow in their leadership abilities and self confidence. This may be through a Guest Speaker, Group Discussion or Creative Activity.
Lastly, who doesn't LOVE food? We hope to have a local food truck, vendor, business or restaurant sponsor our monthly meeting. If you know of anyone interested in supporting us, please E-mail us.
Middle School (6th-8th) Next Workshop Series starts Oct. 30th !
All of our programs offered through Girls With Confidence conduct special events throughout the year. At these events, we may have a guest speaker talk with the girls about a specific topic, we may focus on giving back to the community by partnering with local non-profits or it could be just a fun 'Girls Night Out' event.
Our events are typically offered to a wider age range and larger audience. Every event is different and may include some or all of the following: discussions, ice breaker activities, games and creative art projects. Keep your eyes open for these events on our calendar and will be added from time to time.
When your girls participate in Girls With Leadership, they will also be eligible to participate as a Girls With Confidence Mentor for our younger girls and receive volunteer hours for helping with the girls and events. We have high standards for our volunteers and every new potential volunteer must complete our Volunteer Application and sign our Volunteer Agreement form before they volunteer for any event.
If you are signing up for Volunteer Opportunities, you must use the approved code. You should have received it through our App- Remind. If you are approved and have not joined this communication app, please let us know and we will add you.

Our GIRLS WITH LEADERSHIP program for middle school girls offers 6-8 week workshop series which gives girls a comfortable environment to share and discuss things that are on their mind. Often girls at this age are adamant about attending workshops, especially if they don't know other participants but they love it once they attend one. They often realize they are not alone in how they feel and other middle school girls have the same worries they do.
We are excited to offer a 6 week workshop series for our Middle School girls this Fall. This series will focus on relevant topics that middle school girls experience. These topics include:
Each week your teen girls will enjoy spending time together discussing age relevant topics that they may be experiencing challenges with. They get to share and hear from other peers. Our sessions are interactive, fun, engaging and thought provoking. Our plan is to work on an on-going creative project that the girls will love taking home on their last session. Your daughters can attend on their own or with a friend.
Session Dates (Mondays from 6:00-7:30pm):
