We have a problem and need your help! Did you know that:

90% of 4th through 8th graders report being victims of bullying

Girls age 14-16 engage in self harm at 3 times the rate of boys that age

Suicide is the second leading cause of death for youth ages 12-18

1 in 9 girls and 1 in 53 boys under the age of 18 experience sexual abuse or assault at the hands of an adult

75% of girls with low self-esteem reported engaging in negative activities such as disordered eating, cutting, bullying, smoking or drinking when thinking poorly about themselves

Our signature program for teens, Gals Lead, tackles these painful statistics head on by working with girls to develop and cultivate their self-confidence, authenticity, and leadership potential. Participants gain the clarity and confidence needed to create intentional career paths they love – ones that align with their divine passion and purpose. The program focuses on four Pillars of Success: (1) Know Yourself; (2) Dream Big; (3) Overcome Obstacles; (4) Take Action.

The Gals Lead program's retreats, conferences, and workshops teach teenage girls the responsibility and the role of leadership, help them develop a life-long love for learning, and ultimately equip them to transform the 7 Cultural Spheres of Influence that define our world today: Government, Business, Education, Religion, Family, Media, & Arts/Entertainment.

Over the past 5 years, Gals Lead has worked directly with over 250 teen girls, held 5 weekend retreats, and led an assembly and 5-month-long Club Program at Great Mills High School. We are currently in our second year of a 9-month-long Club Program at Great Mills High School. We've had fantastic results, and are ready to expand to serve more girls.

We need your support to expand our program and engage more teen girls in more middle and high schools across the Southern Maryland Tri-County Region. Our goal is to launch 6 additional club programs (two schools per county) that will run from September 2018 – May 2019. We need to raise $30,000 to support this effort.
