THE MISSION OF MYPOWER, INC.
WHO WE ARE
AND WHAT WE DO
MyPower, Inc. is a non-profit organization that empowers young women to successfully navigate the teen years by making good choices, setting goals, succeeding academically, and avoiding teen pregnancy.
MyPower offers three quality programs at NO COST:
MyPower Mentoring circles offer 5th grade girls a 12-week structured empowerment and self-esteem program through our spring MyPower Circles. Sessions are held once a week for 2 1⁄2 hours after school. The program was customized from well researched programs proven to help girls make good choices, set goals, succeed academically, and avoid teen pregnancy. We address issues in a straight-forward and relevant manner. Healthy snacks, crafts, and T-shirts are included for all the girls. We have 75% student participation in nine elementary schools.
MIDDLE SCHOOL EDITION
MyPower Middle School Edition is empowering 6th, 7th and 8th grade girls to reach their full individual potential by providing fun, social, and learning activities. The Middle School Edition is geared toward preventing teen pregnancy, developing personal confidence, excelling academically, and enhancing life skills. This six-session, once a month program, is offered during Advisory/Homeroom period to all Hobbs and Eunice middle school girls. We have more than 1,000 students participating.
MyPower Leadership Camps are exciting day camps for girls entering 6th-9th grades. These camps instill academic and social skills in a dynamic and entertaining setting! Local teachers, community leaders, and university students work as facilitators. Middle school girls can look forward to fun and fulfilling learning experiences, free MyPower T-shirts, games, academic, and skill-building activities. The camps are held in late summer on the Hobbs High School Campus.
All of our programs are offered at NO COST to the girls.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT MYPOWER
“I would recommend this program for other young girls. I loved it and my daughter did too. I am so glad there is a program for our young ladies. I wish there would have been something like this when I was growing up”.
“I wish I would have had this opportunity in school. They learn so much about themselves and who they can become. They see what can be achieved when they set goals. Thank you for spending time with my daughter!”
“I would recommend this program to ALL girls. This program has opened the doors to conversations that my daughter should have had a long time ago. It made it easy to talk to about issues that she is facing and will face”.
“I would highly recommend this program because it is a forum that builds high self- esteem and gives them “tools” to rise above peer-pressure and negative influences to obtain goals in which they have set.”
“It has been very good for my child. I have 4 girls and my first born has attended. I will enroll the other 3 when it’s time.”
“She has learned to be herself and no longer is afraid of what others think about her. She knows she has a voice and she can express herself more without being afraid.”
