Empower Her Month
March 8th – 29th
Signature Leadership Series
Guided by the International Women’s Day movement and Women’s History Month, Empower Her is BGCWPA’s annual event to inspire the next generation of women to advocate, reflect, and take action around empowerment for young women all across Western Pennsylvania and beyond. Empower Her will be a month long event, with weekly sessions filled with fun & educational activities, influential speakers, caring & strong female role models, and meaningful lessons to encourage confidence, body positivity, healthy lifestyles, and personal growth.
All Empower Her participants ages 8-17 will have the opportunity to participate in four live weekly sessions, and receive two contactless deliveries right to their doorsteps free of charge! The first delivery will include supplies and resources needed to participate in each weekly session and activity, and a “fab box” with sweet treats and healthy foods in collaboration with our partner, Fifth Season, for a celebration event in conclusion of Empower Her!
Weekly synchronous sessions will be held beginning March 8th, on each Monday throughout the month from 6:30 – 8:30 PM. Participants will be broken up by age group, and given time to complete activities and socialize freely with one other and mentors. Activities and topics include art, dance, exercise, body positivity, making slime, creating your very own ID badge or a life budget for a future career, and engaging with female doctors, engineers, athletes, dancers, biologists and business owners.
