Welcome To The Girls Empowerment Workshops’ Website!

It is very easy to tell girls, ‘Be strong, you are beautiful, you are capable, don’t do this, do that, don’t worry about that, who cares what others think, etc. What is missing is 
the idea of instilling worth. How do we raise a girl to feel she is worthy — worthy of good friends, worthy of healthy relationships, worthy of speaking her mind and of being heard, worthy of her dreams, worthy of trying something nobody else has done?

If someone doesn’t feel worthy, they might do something they don’t really want to do, because they don’t have the courage 
or strength to say so. They may be coming from a place of fear rather than a place of personal love, respect and power.

The Girls Empowerment Workshop teaches girls that they are valuable and have a voice, by giving them information and tools to use. When girls feel confident about their bodies, their intelligence, their worthiness and their sexuality, they have the opportunity to go into the world and fully express themselves — as girls, as women, as humans. If we spend too much time having conversations with ourselves about not being good enough, pretty enough, sexy enough or accepted enough, we are limiting ourselves to what we think the world thinks of us, rather than putting forth what we think of ourselves, what we find important, what we want to contribute to the world.

Everyone has something important to share, and if that beautiful energy is wasted, then the world never gets to see it, and a girl misses out on what it feels like to be strong, free, worthy and capable.

The Mission of The Girls Empowerment Workshop is to educate, empower and inspire girls by raising awareness, developing communication skills and cultivating self respect.


I thought The Workshop was brilliant. I’ve have a lot of friends who have eating disorders and emotional problems… in class you could ask questions about anything and they would answer you, no matter what you asked.  ~Taylor
This workshop has taught me how to love myself. The most valuable lesson I learned is how to communicate with others and myself. I will be forever grateful for the workshop. ~Emma-Rose
Through the GEW I learned not only more about issues I was already concerned about (how women are portrayed in the media, how women are portrayed in life, and how we can do our best to challenge those stereotypes), but I rediscovered my own drive to fight harder for these issues than ever before. ~Aria
The Girls Empowerment Workshop was a complete learning experience… a very cool place to release thoughts and grow with wisdom. Thank you! ~Caitlyn
Because of The Girls Empowerment Workshop I learned to respect myself more, and to stand up for what I think is right even if I am standing alone. - Megan
When first I took this workshop, I was fourteen and wanted to please everyone all the time. Now I’m seventeen and I’m still struggling with how to be a strong woman. I hate my body some days. And I don’t love the person I am on other days...But because of The Girls’ Empowerment Workshop, I learned to be more kind to myself and more kind to others. Because of the workshop, I am more self-aware and more knowledgeable about the things that are hurtful and unsafe for me and other girls. I know how to take care of myself better than I did. ~ Emma
