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 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.
