7 in 10 girls don’t think they’re good enough. Before they even step onto the field, their mind is filled with thoughts like, “I’m not good enough.” “I don't have what it takes.” “I’m going to fail.” “Why am I even trying, who do I think I am?”
The fact is, a girl's confidence plummets during puberty. By age 14, girls drop out of sports at twice the rate of boys.
WE CAN CHANGE THESE STATISTICS, but we need your help!
There’s a proven way to help girls build confidence for life: through mentorship and education.
On December 1st 2019, this ZGiRLS team is running 13.1 miles to make sure that every girl gets the opportunity to build confidence and connect with a life-changing mentor.
HOW DOES ZGiRLS WORK? ZGiRLS teaches 11-14-year-old girls tangible skills to help her build confidence and mental resilience. All ZGiRLS mentors are female athletes and they go through extensive training to learn the ZGiRLS Curriculum™. They serve as a "near-peer" mentor that can reach her on a different level than a parent or coach might, and they will give her the tools and perspective to live with ZERO LIMITATIONS (hint: that’s where the “Z” in ZGiRLS comes from).
Since 2012, over 3,000 girls have been transformed by the ZGiRLS programs.
We hear everyday, that we are changing the world with confidence.
Our success wouldn’t be possible without YOU, and your support is critical to keep the momentum going!
The gift of confidence is the greatest way to honor the strong women and girls in your life.
P.S. Every contribution made before December 3rd, determines the number of girls that can be supported in 2020. Help ensure EVERY girl has access to life-changing confidence-building tools and mentorship.
