Confidence Club gives me a safe space to open up and discuss issues that are causing me stress. I enjoy the creative activities and sharing with other girls like me.”

Confidence Club fosters self-confidence and teaches the leadership and conflict resolution skills necessary to navigate middle school. The girls have fun while talking through the different challenges they face in middle school. The Confidence Club Mentors serve as essential positive role models for the girls.

We are so grateful for the Confidence Club after-school programs at Saxe. Girls who participate have the opportunity to increase their self-awareness and social awareness. Through discussion and practice they develop their ability to communicate well, make sound decisions, and nurture positive relationships. Parents report an increase in self-esteem in their daughters at the completion of the program. LiveGirl complements our school-wide Social Emotional Learning initiatives beautifully.

This summit was amazing! My favorite part was being challenged by the exercises because although it was hard, there were girls everywhere you turned shouting encouragement to push through. I also loved hearing the SparkFire Active story. I now believe that if I can make a small positive spark, it will have a ripple effect and create positive change in the world. And it was super fun getting creative to make a video ad!

It was an honor to be part of “Your Voice Matters” leadership summit. I was impressed with the girls’ interest and enthusiasm and your enthusiastic coaching. You certainly have engaged all those young women in meaningful ways to make their voices matter.
