Empowering Girls Virtually
Updated: Oct 26, 2020
Despite barriers presented by COVID-19, Daughters of Worth remains committed to the mission of empowering girls to create the life of their dreams. This year, all empowerment sessions and connect groups will be offered completely online to safely serve girls of our communities.
Historically, Daughters of Worth has partnered with local school systems to provide face to face mentorship and advocacy for the girls of our communities through GLAM Girls, Girls Living a Mission. These sessions traditionally are offered twice per month and offer girls a safe space to connect with one another, their mentor, and to receive empowerment sessions, designed to equip them to create the tomorrow of their dreams.
Due to the barriers presented by COVID-19, Daughters of Worth has opted to transition to a completely virtual format for the 2020-21 school year to ensure the safety, health, and well-being of all girls and volunteers for the organization. In effort to meet these pressing needs, a total of 30 phenomenal women have been trained to serve as GLAM Girl facilitators for individual groups! Through weekly connection, interactive sessions, and opportunities for personal coaching sessions, participants are able to find support during their time of need.
In addition to providing weekly sessions designed to equip girls through character formation, leadership development, health and wellness, positive mindset/resiliency, and personal development, Daughters of Worth is also committed to assist participants with emergency needs. Through provision of food, clothing, school supplies, personal hygiene items, and basic household needs, GLAM Girls are discovering that there is truly a power in being surrounded by a tribe of women who are rising up to empower them to create the life of their dreams!
As the pandemic leads to isolation, mental health needs rising, increased domestic violence, economic hardship, and academic frustration, Daughters of Worth is committed to providing a safe space for girls of our communities to find connection, support, assistance with needs, and inclusion.
There are currently more than 160 girls connected through Daughters of Worth GLAM Girls virtual sessions, mentorship, and advocacy. For those who are not currently enrolled but would like to learn more, empowerment sessions are available twice per month for all elementary and all teen girls to join to find inspiration in their journey and tools for their success! Information for these upcoming events can be found on the Events Page. For more information about how to become connected with Daughters of Worth, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
