#GIRLSUNITE School Chapter is a 10-12 week after-school program like no other; This program is designed to allow girls to enter a judgement free environment, full of love and girl power. Our curriculum motivates girls to embrace their individuality and define their lives on their own terms. Plus, the girls make awesome new friends, gain insight on a healthy lifestyle, build their self-confidence, and celebrate all that makes them unique.
#GIRLSUNITE program encourages positive emotional, social, mental, and physical development.
The #GIRLSUNITE circle is where the girls discuss their personal thoughts and beliefs about experiences and challenges girls face at their age. We start by helping the girls get a better understanding of who they are, excepting their uniqueness, and figure out what’s important to them. Then, we analyze the importance of team work and healthy relationships. These discussions will help develop essential strategies and skills to help them navigate their life happenings; they can then explore how they can positively connect with and shape the world, in their own way.
Physical activity is also implemented in our program to inspire an appreciation of fitness and to build lifelong healthy lifestyle habits. The girls are provided with a goal setting/progress book for the session to keep. In the beginning of the program, the girls will test their fitness base with the exercises given. Those numbers will be recorded and goal number will be set. Their improvements will be monitored every two weeks and will evaluate their goal achievements at end of session This a great way to practice goal setting, work ethic, and persistence. At the end of the program, the girls participate in a #GIRLSUNITE obstacle course event. This celebratory, non-competitive event is the culminating experience of the mental, emotional, and physical pieces of the curriculum. Completing the obstacle course gives the girls a tangible understanding of the confidence that comes through accomplishment as well as a framework for setting and achieving life goals, no matter how big or small. Crossing the finish line is a defining moment when the girls realize that even the seemingly impossible is possible.
#GIRLSUNITE will host one charity event during the three-month session. The girls will choose their charity and have it approved through I AM Movement, Inc. Once approved, they can then begin to raise funds for the charity event. Being involved in the community is essential in developing leadership skills and team building.
