Our girls are struggling:

  • 90% of 4th through 8th graders report being victims of bullying1
  • Girls age 14-16 engage in self harm at 3 times the rate of boys that age2
  • Suicideis the second leading cause of death for youth ages 12-183
  • 1 in 9 girls and 1 in 53 boys under the age of 18 experience sexual abuseor assault at the hands of an adult4

Gals Lead,the Dream Queen Association’s, signature program for teen girls, tackles these painful statistics head on. Wework with girls to develop and cultivate their self-confidence, authenticity, and leadership potential. Participants gain the clarity and confidence needed to create intentional career paths they love – ones that align with their divine passion and purpose. The program focuses on four Pillars of Success: (1) Know Yourself; (2) Dream Big; (3) Overcome Obstacles; (4) Take Action.

“As a result of attending the Gals Lead Teen Program I’m feeling more confident, motivated, and prepared for dealing with difficult situations. I learned some good tools on overcoming things that are impeding progress in the future. I also liked getting close with the other girls.” — Abi C. (11th grade)

 

Gals Lead retreats, assemblies, and clubs teach teenage girls responsibility and the role of leadership, help them develop a life-long love for learning, and ultimately equip them to transform the 7 Cultural Spheres of Influence that define our world today: Government, Business, Education, Religion, Family, Media, & Arts/Entertainment.

Over the past 5 years, Gals Lead has worked directly with over 250 teen girls, held 5 weekend retreats, led an assembly and Club Programs at local schools. We’ve had fantasticresults and are expanding to serve more girls.

We need to raise $30,000 to expand our program and engage more teen girls in more middle and high schools. Our goal is to launch 6 additional club programs by September 2018.  All club programs run from September – May.

Please join us in making this a reality !
