About The Cause

What We Do

Sand Sisters Los Angeles’ #GIRLPOWERFUL is a youth empowerment program designed to give girls the tools to build a strong sense of self. Our mission is to make every girl feel seen, valued and heard.™

Our philosophy & curriculum is based on social-emotional learning and is endorsed by L. Edmondson Ed. D. Our work is for every kind of child. We work with all types of children, from diverse populations comprised of the middle class, underserved youth, girls from single-parent homes (we were raised by a single mother), foster youth, multi-ethnic individuals with varied socio-economic backgrounds. Each program strives to empower children to see themselves as confident, strong, intelligent and one-of-a-kind.

Why We Do It

- 7 out of 10 girls believe that they are not good enough, including their looks, performance in school and relationships with friends and family. 
- Between the ages of 8 and 14, girls' confidence levels fall by 30 percent. Preventing this from happening requires taking action. 
- It's best to learn SEL skills at a young age to help children recognize consistent patterns of thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that make them feel happy, valued and secure. 
- Sand Sisters is a dedicated safe space where tween girls are encouraged to set and achieve goals, work well with others, manage emotions, self-reflect and build positive self-esteem.
- 100% of Sand Sisters say they feel comfortable sharing their feelings and showing their true self in class.
- 100% of Sand Sister participants say their mentor shows genuine interest in their well being.
- Participants say they end their #GirlPowerful session feeling excited, confident, inspired, happy, motivated and included.
