WHAT WE DO:
Courageous Girls Club (CGC) is a nonprofit organization connecting mothers and their daughters (K-8) by supporting them to start their own Courageous Girls Club with other Moms and daughters, meet altogether once or twice a month, and choose from our website whichever issues/activities they want to tackle at each meeting based on their own interests and needs.
We offer 3 platforms to help empower Courageous Girls:
1.) Power Up! - interactive activities which help break down the important issues that 21st century girls face today;
2.) Design Change - volunteer partnerships which help expand their world-view; and
3.) Call to Adventure - adventure trips that challenge limits and promote environmental activism.
The goal is for Courageous Girls to collect the life tools they need, the knowledge of the world and invisible forces around them, and with the support from their fellow club members be inspired to choose courage to live the stories they want to write.
YOUR STORY. EMPOWERED.
WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?
Everything is a story.
Your life is a story, but your fear is a story. Courage is a story. The subconscious things your mind is telling you in your head about math class, is a story. Your friend tells you you can’t sit with her at lunch today, is just part of the story. But how you end it, is completely up to you.
We sometimes can’t control what happens to us, but we can always control how we respond to it, and how we end our stories.
The Courageous Girls Club helps to "power up" her journey by giving her knowledge, skills, and access to the different options from which she can choose to tell her story - whether it being assertive with friends (instead of passive or aggressive), discovering her own values through which to guide her life, or expanding her world-view and mindset through volunteering and adventures.
It's by viewing challenges as the most important and exciting part of our storyline, that we learn to embrace these events where we can gain the most insights into ourselves and the world around us. These challenges or obstacles we face provide the most opportunity for growth - where we may have to practice speaking up, learn from our mistakes, and where we may feel the need to challenge ourselves to do hard things - ultimately powering us up with a skill-set that let's us write our own life stories the way we like.
