No girl should ever think: “You're not good enough. You don't have what it takes,” “You're going to fail. Why are you even trying?” “Who do you think you are?”
But more often than not, this is the inner dialogue of 11-16 year old girls. A girls’ confidence plummets during puberty.
In fact, 7 in 10 girls don’t think they’re good enough. This personal pessimism peaks at age 14 for girls, which leads to them prematurely drop out of sport, at twice the rate of boys.
When girls are on the sidelines, it effects you. When they miss out on opportunities to pursue their potential, you lose the chance for a stronger pipeline of female leadership.
Imagine...for a minute...what the world would look like if every 11-year-old year girl was given the tools to regulate her self-talk in a way that helped her build confidence and self-esteem (rather than tear herself down).
THAT'S the world you want to live in! That's the world you're creating when you invest in ZGiRLS! YOU have the power, right now, to make a life-changing impact and give the gift of confidence.
Want to know the recipe?
Connect her a positive female role model and give her the tools and perspective to unconditionally love herself and chase down her dreams. After all, when you have confident girls, it changes communities.
How does ZGiRLS work?
ZGiRLS elevates girls in two ways: through mentorship and education. Mentors, who are all female athletes, go through extensive training to become certified, then they meet with a group of girls to facilitate conversation around the ZGiRLS Curriculum™, discussing things like resilience, communication skills, and positive self talk. The program develops girls to be mentally tough so they can knock down all internal mental barriers like self-doubt, insecurity, and fear and learn to believe that there are ZERO LIMITATIONS to what they can accomplish (which is where the Z in ZGiRLS comes from).
Where does my gift go?
$50 - Trains and certifies a new female athlete ZGiRLS Mentor (including background check)

Help ensure EVERY girl has access to ZGiRLS! Join us in raising the necessary funds so that ZGiRLS never turns a girl away due to financial barriers.
My goal is to raise $1,310.00 to provide scholarships for girls to participate in ZGiRLS programs. Give the gift of confidence today!
