About

What We Do

Did you know that a girl's self-esteem decreases by 30% by the time she turns 8? Depending on a child's circumstances, girls may never get this confidence back before entering into their teen years. Sand Sisters LA is a youth empowerment nonprofit designed to give girls the tools to build a strong sense of self. By being a consistent dedicated safe space after school, tween girls are encouraged to set and achieve goals, work well with others, manage emotions, self-reflect and build positive self-esteem. Our mission is to make every girl feel seen, valued and heard.™ The Girl Powerful philosophy & curriculum is based on social-emotional learning and is endorsed by L. Edmondson Ed. D.


With this fundraising campaign, Sand Sisters will be implementing their Girl Powerful program in underserved areas by providing socio-emotional learning curriculum to help girls build self-esteem, move their bodies and find value in female unity. 




Why We Do It

-  

- 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.
