Each lesson includes collaborative talk, interactive fun activities, a mindfulness exercise, self-reflection, and more. Empowered girls change the world, and this curriculum gives our girls the tools they need to make healthy and confident choices as they navigate the tween and teen years

“It helps you find the best in you and others and that’s important”
~12 year old Powerful Girl Within® Workshop Participant

The workshop was REALLY fun and I recommend to tell your friends and do it with them. It has made me feel more confident and gave me tools to handle my life. And my teacher Ms. Celeste was an amazing teacher. She’s actually my friend’s mom which is really cool. Do this workshop! You’ll love it!”
~Zora, age 11

Curriculum Overview

Module 1: Discovering Your Powerful Self

In Module 1, girls have the opportunity to reflect on who they really are, discard any beliefs about themselves that don’t feel are aligned with who they are, embrace their true and powerful self, and know that no one can decide who they are but themselves.

Through this module, girls will understand and embrace their true self-identity perhaps like they never have before.

Module 2: Letting Go of What Weighs You Down

In Module 2, girls learn what it really means to let go, why it’s so important to let go, and how to truly release that which no longer serves them. When girls let go of past hurts, guilt, and regrets they can more fully embrace their Powerful Self.

Through this module, girls will see the importance of letting go in a new light, and will have an opportunity to empower themselves by practicing strategies to let go.

Module 3: Activating Your Powerful Girl Super Powers: Your Thoughts and Feelings

In Module 3, girls discover their most powerful faculties, or as we call them, their Powerful Girl Super Powers. Then they explore two of their super powers, which are their Thoughts and Feelings.

Girls become aware of how powerful their thoughts and emotions are, how they are using their thoughts and emotions, and how to manage their thoughts and emotions to create the success that they want.

Module 4: Your Super Power of Desire: Creating What You Want in Your Life

In Module 4, girls explore another of their super powers, the power of their Desire. They will develop a vision of what they want to create in their lives using the power of their imagination, and experience fun and engaging activities to help them move toward their vision and dreams.

They also learn about the role of opportunities and action in making their vision and dreams a reality, as well as how to overcome challenges using the power of their desire and imagination.

“This totally boosted my confidence”
~12 year old Powerful Girl Within® Workshop Participant

“Everyone is really nice and respectful and it really helps with self-esteem. At my age most girls don’t get to do these kinds of things and don’t understand how to help themselves, but this class helps with that if you were to send you kid to this class I would totally recommend it.”
~ Sydalise, age 12

“As a parent I really appreciated the range of activities the girls did and the different range of tools they learned about – all in service of building their confidence. And best of all was the bonding and camaraderie with the other girls in the program.”
Mom of a Powerful Girl in New Orleans

“The Powerful Girl Within was shared with my daughter at just the right time in her development. She felt inspired and centered as she enters puberty. She received tools to help understand and balance her feelings and aspirations. Her leader Celeste Kelly is a soulful guide for the girls to ignite their own unique inner power and peace. It’s a true gift for growing. Our whole family appreciated the program and we believe others will too.”
~ Monique O. New Orleans

“I just want to say a few words about the Powerful Girl Within Program that my daughter attended. I can honestly say this program definitely helps give girls the tools they need to be confident in themselves and also in learning to appreciate who they are.”
Mom of a Powerful Girl in New Orleans

“This was such a great opportunity for my daughter to experience. She has been able to better understand her views on what she wants in relationships with herself and with others. In today’s world it helps to have a tribe help to guide our children to become strong and independent thinkers who are aware of their surroundings.” ~ Angele, Mom in New Orleans

“My daughter participated in the Powerful Girl Within Program earlier this year. This is a very important program for girls in their pre-teen years to learn skills for dealing with the pressures that face them in the years ahead. I wish I had something like this when I was her age. I’ve seen two long lasting behavior changes in my daughter in the months since the program. First, my daughter added a piece to our bedtime ritual where she shares with me something she’s grateful for. She does this every single night! It’s touching and delightful to hear her think and share this way. Second, I’ve seen her use some specific tools she learned in the program to deal with anxiety and stress. She started at a new school this fall and has used these tools to alleviate her anxiety over it. It is working! I can’t recommend the program enough.”
Amy, Mom in New Orleans

“After each one of these workshops I felt more confident with myself, like I could do anything. One of the things I learned helped me focus before a math test! You should definitely check it out.”
Ida, age 12

“It is helpful and it is fun and a lot of expressing your thoughts. You do exciting activities like doing a vision board. It is fun!” ~ Lily, age 11

“It helps you express your emotions. It teaches you to love yourself and to forgive others. And it is never boring!”
Sydnie, age 12

“I loved Powerful Girl Within! I have more self-esteem and it has helped me become more secure. All of the lessons were wonderful. Even if you’re just doing it for fun, I would totally recommend it. It was so fun!”
Sophiaage 13

“This workshop is super fun, and all the things we talk about (tools) actually work, like I subconsciously do them now. It’s very fun and you can express yourself, and Ms. Celeste is super awesome and relatable for pretty much every girl. You should definitely check it out.”
Opalage 11
