What is Power Of Me?

The Power of Me is a program designed for girls and boys in grades 4-8, as well as for adults with disabilities. It is all about empowering participants with knowledge and self-worth and encouraging them to build their self-esteem. The program consists of retreats and workshops that provide instruction and guidance on the following topics:

  • Body Image and Self-Worth
  • Peer Pressure, Bullying, and Cyber Safety
  • Puberty
  • Friendship and Healthy Relationships
  • Self-defense
  • Exploring Emotions
  • Conflict Resolution
  • And more!

The Power of Me helps address issues like low self-esteem, changes in mood, roller-coaster of emotions, friendships and bullying, and other topics girls, boys and adults with disabilities may encounter in their lives.

Here are a few key benefits of the Power of Me:

  • Self-acceptance: Participants understand that their feelings are not wrong. They’re normal.
  • Community: They’ll talk about what they’re experiencing, which can bring a deeper connection to the group.
  • Safe Space: Participants can talk about their feelings, free of judgment, with a guide who cares deeply about them.
  • Participants experience education, movement, and mindfulness in a community of their peers.

I am so grateful for the day you provided. I had such a remarkable time; several of my girls were talking about it the rest of the afternoon! They felt so special.
