"Empowered Girls Rise’s mission is to nurture self-respect, confidence, and purpose in girls ages 11-25 through education, personal development, mentorship, and community."
Empowered Girls Rise was created and founded for the sole purpose of educating and supporting girls during middle, high, and college stages. Girls today are faced with so many more challenges because they have access to the world on social media. Now more than ever, girls need strong, positive role models to look up to. Girls need to know that there is hope and success for them if they are motivated to pursue their dreams. Through our Girls Movement Rallies and Hands-on Workshops, girls are able to speak and work hands on with a variety of powerful, successful women to begin to shape a sense of direction for themselves and make their mark on the world!
