We have collaborated with some of the finest professors and leadership experts in the area to develop our curriculum and leadership model: from Yale University, The Brave Institute from the University of Connecticut, the CT Collective for Women and Girls, and the Connecticut Governor’s Prevention Partnership. Our mission is to equip girls with the necessary leadership skills to thrive and have a positive impact on the world.  We prepare girls to LIVE our leadership values:

LIVE brave: Embody resilience and perseverance to overcome obstacles; stand up and speak out for what you believe in.

LIVE kind: Connect positively with yourself and others and have a positive impact on the world around you.

LIVE your true self: Love yourself, believe in yourself, and embrace your original, unique self.

LIVE your power: Identify and leverage your inner powers; activate and self-empower to change the world.

“Middle school is a challenging time, especially for girls. Our goal is to provide a positive community where every girl feels a sense of belonging, where every girl is inspired, and where every girl learns the leadership skills to change the world.”
