Our mission is to empower young women mentally, emotionally and physically to promote school and community engagement ensuring each girl reaches her full potential.
Girl PowHER is a gender specific program serving hundreds of adolescent girls, grades 6-12, in Eagle County. The mission of Girl PowHer specifically is to“help adolescent girls gain mindful awareness, bolster self-esteem and stay engaged in school through healthy activities, community service and positive mentorship.” Activities including yoga, hiking, biking, art, volunteering locally and time spent with positive female role models are paramount in helping these young women develop their own unique identity, allowing them to become well rounded young women who will better serve their community. As with all YouthPower365 Programs, educational support is a priority in all Girl PowHER programs. In addition to creating physical and emotional well-being, we hope to increase high school graduation rates as well as increase the number of young women seeking higher education in Eagle County.
Girl PowHER was started in January 2010 when Colorado native Amanda Precourt joined up with YouthPower365 and other fellow advocates of gender specific programing. Programming is currently in 7 middle and high schools in Eagle County with plans for expansion in 2013/2014. Girl PowHER, through constant collaboration with local businesses, volunteers, local schools and YouthPower365 staff, is quickly becoming the premier gender specific program in Eagle County.
