THE STORY:

Join us in helping girls find their power. For 20 years, Girls Empowerment Network (GEN) has been a trusted resource for young women in Texas; a place for them to get support and learn skills they so desperately need. Unfortunately, the factors that chip away at girls’ self-esteem are reaching them at younger and younger ages and the work is far from done. Did you know that a study of girls ages 3-6 showed that nearly 50% of them were already worried about their weight? It’s also been found that three-fourths of girls with low self-esteem engage in harmful activities, such as disordered eating, bullying, smoking, or drinking. Here at GEN we work to change that course. Thankfully, girls across Texas are learning the information and skills they need to be confident and successful in safe, girl-focused spaces in GEN’s programs. For 20 years now we have been helping girls find their power. GEN reaches more than 13,000 people a year, and 87% of our programming is offered at no cost to participants. This means that your gift is directly impacting young women like these. Just $36 provides girls with 2 hours of afterschool programming. Please consider making a gift of $36 to support programs that instill the confidence necessary for girls to make positive choices for a lifetime. Evaluation results prove that girls who are very engaged with our long-term programming have higher rates of school attendance and are less likely to get into trouble. On behalf of the girls you will empower, we thank you.
