Mentoring Workshops

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.

C.A.P.R.E.C.I.A. Cares Workshops 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.

The primary goal of C.A.P.R.E.C.I.A. Cares Workshops is to educate, empower and inspire girls by raising awareness, developing communication skills and cultivating self respect.

Empowerment Seminars

The Empowerment Seminar is designed to expose young girls to activities that will assist them in gaining insight about themselves and the world around them. The seminar will include an opening session, light snacks, and workshops that focus on a variety of topics including empowerment, the arts, music, entrepreneurship and financial literacy. The seminar is open to girls 10 – 17 years old and their parents/guardians.

Why The Need

Statistics consistently demonstrate the alarming incidence of dangerous behaviors in middle school aged girls, as well as the positive impact of mentoring.  2009 data suggests that, of the middle school girl population in the U.S.: 

 9% are pregnant 

22% never make it through high school (drop out) 

27% have been or will be suicidal 

34% have eating disorders 

55% experiment with alcohol, drugs or tobacco 

and, of those with low self-esteem, 25% resort to self-injurious behavior and 75% report engaging in activities such as disordered eating, cutting, bullying, smoking or drinking 

 

The good news is that data also suggests that youth who are mentored are:

27% less likely to begin using alcohol

37% less likely to skip class

46% less likely to begin using illegal drugs

52% less likely to skip school, are more confident in their academic performance, and get along better with their families.
