Every girl should be allowed the same opportunity to attend our programs regardless of their families financial circumstances.  Donations in this area will allow girls to attend confidence & leadership building programs such as after school workshop series, events or summer camps. If you know of any girl that might benefit from a scholarship, please share this link with their family and we'll get in touch with them- Scholarships.

Uganda- Girls With Confidence

Girls With Confidence is thrilled to announce its expansion into Africa.  As of August, Ann Mugisha of Shepard’s House Childcare Ministries in Uganda has begun to lead girls with our confidence-building curriculum.

The aim of Shepard’s House is to raise, nurture and educate orphaned, needy, and destitute children of the district Mpigi situated in Uganda. They help children regardless of race, religion, or sex especially in the areas of providing education, medical care, and residential care. They look for support from friends all over the world to partner with to give these children the future they deserve.

Besides the Confident Girls sessions being held at the school, an International Pen Pal program has also begun. Girls from Shepard’s House have been partnered with girls from all over the Tampa Bay and Pittsburgh areas and letter writing has commenced.  Donations will support our Uganda community of girls in a variety of ways: through programming, school and office supplies, feminine hygiene products and clothing.

The Confidence & Leadership Foundation

Tiffany's Angels

In 2013, one of our participants Tiffany Jones suddenly passed away from an unexpected illness.  At the request of Tiffany's family, Girls With Confidence started a memorial fund in her honor, allowing families to make donations to our organization in lieu of flowers.  Tiffany's Memorial Fund has allowed GWC to provide assistance to girls whose families may be going through financial struggles. 

Due to the growth of Girls With Confidence over the past few years, we founded The Confidence & Leadership Foundation to continue Tiffany's legacy and expand our reach to support more girls in our local communities, throughout the United States and now internationally.  We are proud to honor her in this way and we know she is with us, smiling and incredibly proud of our mission and what's we've accomplished.

If you or your company are able to make a donation, we know it would benefit our girls greatly. CLICK HERE to make your donation. Thank you.

Our Mission: Providing all youth the opportunity to grow their self confidence to become tomorrow’s leaders!
