Her Future Now Summer 2323 Workshops
Her Future Now is an exciting and transformative summer workshops designed exclusively for girls aged 11-14. Our program is dedicated to empowering, educating, and amplifying the voices of young girls. Through a series of engaging and interactive sessions, we provide girls with the tools and resources they need to confidently navigate their adolescent years and beyond.
At Her Future Now, we focus on fostering personal growth and self-development. Our curriculum covers a wide range of topics, including self-esteem, leadership, communication skills, mental health awareness, body positivity, and more. We also address important social issues such as gender equality, diversity, and inclusion.
Our workshops are led by experienced educators, mentors, and guest speakers who are passionate about empowering girls. We provide a safe and supportive environment where girls can express themselves freely, ask questions, and engage in open discussions. Through group activities, team-building exercises, and hands-on learning, girls develop valuable skills such as critical thinking, problem-solving, and decision-making.
Her Future Now is not just about learning; it's also about creating lasting connections and building a supportive community. Girls have the opportunity to network with peers who share similar interests and challenges, fostering friendships and mentorship relationships that can last a lifetime.
We believe that investing in the empowerment and education of young girls is crucial for their future success. Her Future Now is a unique and comprehensive summer workshop that equips girls with the confidence, knowledge, and skills to thrive in all areas of their lives. Join us on this empowering journey and help us shape the leaders of tomorrow.
We Are Not Broken®, a 501(C)3 public charity, is seeking corporate sponsors to support our mission. We are looking for 19 corporate or private donors to contribute $500 each, which will enable us to send a young girl through our summer workshop program at the We Are Not Broken studios.
Investing in the lives of our young girls, particularly those between the ages of 11-14 who are navigating the challenges of growing up in today's world, is crucial. Your sponsorship will provide a girl with the opportunity to develop valuable skills, tools, and confidence that will empower her to make a positive impact in her world.
By investing in just one girl, you have the power to change one life and set her on a path towards success. Your support will equip her with the necessary resources to overcome obstacles and thrive. Together, we can make a meaningful difference in the lives of young girls and contribute to building a brighter future for them.
