I AM Movement
I AM a Woman who was once a girl. I AM a Woman who tried to fit social norms. I AM a Woman who was doubted. I AM a Woman who defeated all odds. I AM a Woman who strives to empower our Future Women!
-Crissa Jackson, Co-founder
Crissa Jackson has had the opportunity to travel and inspire girls all over the world. Along with her life experiences, came eye opening moments. Very often she received comments from parents, boys, girls, on how much they appreciated her inspiration, and requests on how to deal with certain situation in their life, such as bullying and social acceptance. After dealing with her own daughter being bullied and hearing of others suffering, she realized the need of positive role models and lack of resources for girls. Crissa and her wife, Alexis, believe that girls deserve so much better and decided to provide that platform for girls like their daughter.
I AM Movement will encourage our youth to discover their own self-confidence, self-awareness, self-love, to set goals for themselves and achieve them. I AM movement will encourage our youth to take charge of their health and educate the importance of a healthy lifestyle.
These educational moments will be taught within our various programs. I AM Movement will provide:
The seminars will provide role models for these young ladies to hear and learn from; structure by which to follow; a better understanding of what life is like as a woman; and the strength and capabilities they have as an individual. The participants will benefit by increasing self-confidence, self-awareness, self-love, leadership, and learning the power of unified women.
AFTERSCHOOL PROGRAMS (#GIRLSUNITE):
#GIRLSUNITE School Chapter program is a free physical and mental activity based program to inspire girls to take charge of their lives and define their own future. It’s a place where girls learn that they can, not where they can't! #GIRLSUNITE School Chapters meet twice a week in teams to help schools empower their female students to be themselves, become leaders and team players. We focus on life skills, self-esteem, goal-setting, physical health, mental health, leadership, and community involvement. We do this through fun engaging lessons taught by our selectively chosen #GIRLSUNITE coaches.
Our all girls basketball camps and/or clinics will increase mental, physical and emotional confidence by providing life skills, leadership and health seminars, while improving their athletic abilities through skills, speed, strength, and endurance training. Our programs will lead young women towards a positive and confident mindset- teaching women to be a strong leader and team player: an athlete.
