Who you are?
As a teenage gal with future ambitions, you may find yourself overwhelmed with all the options. When it comes to taking the next step in your life – whether it’s choosing the next class, deciding about college, or starting your career – you feel like you need to have it all figured out. You know deep down there is a path that is totally fulfilling for you, but you aren’t sure how to get there. You have big dreams in your heart and you want to make them a reality.
What your challenges tend to be
You are getting lots of advice from your teachers, parents, and friends about what you should do and it all feels like a lot of pressure. You really want to feel comfortable in making the best decision for yourself, but you aren’t quite sure how to do that. Your concern is that you might make the wrong decision and wonder how that will affect your life. You sometimes feel like no one understands you or what you really want.
What you most need right now.
Your primary focus right now needs to be on learning how to trust yourself. You will benefit from getting clear about your passion, your purpose, and your unique strengths, skills, talents, and abilities. Once you have the clarity, it’s important to remove the obstacles that may be preventing you from stepping into the world with confidence. Being in a supportive, non-judgmental environment will allow you to explore all of this while feeling connected to others who feel the same way. When you understand that life is a journey, not a destination, you discover the joy and freedom that comes from creating your dream life.

What girls are saying
“This time with you both made me feel better about myself. It helped me look at myself and different situations in new ways. I’m so thankful for this and all the girls giving me more motivation.”
“I love how I left this program feeling better about myself and feeling more confident. Before this program, I was feeling like I couldn’t do much. Now I feel like a leader, more confident, and more encouraged.”
“The benefits I received were confidence, learning to forgive and being able to let go of unnecessary things that were on my shoulders. Before attending the Gals Lead Program I was losing motivation and confidence. Now I feel like a leader, have a smile on my face, and I feel like I can achieve anything.”
“I learned how to let go of my problems and how to take my focus off of what’s not good and think about the good things.”
“I have a clearer vision of who I want to be and how I can take my talents and hobbies and interests and make a career out of it. I thought Gals Lead was going to be a typical teen conference and I wasn’t really looking forward to attending, but I got so much from the program. What I’m taking away from the two days is that I’m not alone. There are other people like me who have gone through similar things and they are successful.”
“If you need some motivation and inspirations, Gals Lead, is great for that. Before attending I thought it was going to be boring. After the two days I feel like I won’t let anything get in the way of my goals. I was definitely inspired.”
“As a result of attending I’ve learned so much about myself. Letting go of the things that are preventing me from achieving my goals was a big deal. I feel more confident about achieving anything I set out to do. I just feel like I was a totally transformed person after the first day. I feel like I can really impact people by being a positive, insightful person who has goals.”
