WHAT WE DO
Build Confident Leaders
At LiveGirl, we equip girls with the necessary leadership skills to thrive
and make a positive impact on the world.
Our evidence-based programs build self-esteem and social-emotional intelligence - the building blocks of a confident leader. We surround girls with positivity and inspiration and provide a diverse community where girls can learn the skills necessary to navigate the teen years. We coach girls to set aside their perfectionism and take risks. We empower them to embrace their true selves and find their voice. Perhaps, most importantly, we expose them to trailblazing female role models so they see what’s possible.
Exceptional leaders understand the essential value of diversity and inclusion. We teach middle school girls “how to” lead and then provide high school girls with opportunities to lead others. High school mentors provide “just been there” mentoring to middle school girls.
There is a confidence crisis amongst teen girls today.
7 out of 10 girls don’t feel like they’re enough or measure up in some way. We start working with girls in middle school, which research has shown in the most critical time in a young person’s development.
For most teenagers, peers replace parents and other adults as major influencers. For girls, confidence plummets during puberty. The “drive for perfection” and social media have compounded the negative peer pressure on girls. More than half of teenage girls are, or think they should be, on diets.
Adolescent girls are experiencing stress, anxiety, and depression at twice the rate of boys. The CDC has reported that teen girl suicide rates are increasing at an “alarming pace”. This disparity is often amplified by online media consumption, which can leave girls feeling isolated and anxious.
