Empowered Sparks, Inc. is an educational, skill-building and creative program designed to introduce girls ages 8-13 to concepts and skills that promote a positive self-image. Empowered Sparks assists girls to challenge social rules and media messages that diminish a girl's sense of self worth as they move toward adolescence. The group activities are aimed to raise self-esteem, self-worth and increase abilities to cope with the upcoming teen challenges. Through a connection to inner resources girls will explore ways to claim a healthy connection to themselves, peers, and the community.
Pre-teen girls are swamped with cultural, social and media messages that are disempowering, negative and demoralizing. Society tells our girls they need to be thinner, smarter, have longer hair, be more beautiful and doesn’t encourages approval of ones self. As a result, our girls are often striving for unattainable or unhealthy goals.
Empowered Sparks, Inc. vision is to change those misconceptions thorough creative, innovative programs and activities. Expectations are to produce acceptably adjusted, stable individuals, who are educated, highly productive, and capable of assuming leadership roles in their communities.
We invite you to explore the site to learn more about the Empowered Sparks program, vision and mission. We hope you will continue to follow our progress and become a part of the family of Empowered Sparks organization.
With great appreciation and much gratitude.
