WHERE DO THE CAMPERS SLEEP AT CAMP?

WHY DO MENTORS MATTER?
Exposure to mentors, role-models and counselors increases self-confidence necessary for success.
IS SELF CONFIDENCE LOWER FOR GIRLS?
Yes. Believe it or not, it is. While we earn the majority of Masters and PhDs, the confidence crisis starts between ages 10 – 16 years of age mostly because of media and other social situations. We are dedicated to helping girls with this issue. Research shows men do not suffer from this issue, as much.
WHAT WILL HAPPEN IF WE DON'T BUILD CONFIDENCE?
We could limit their opportunities.
IS THERE A BENEFIT IF WE ARE SUCCESSFUL?
YES! The research is extensive from the home, to the classroom, to the boardroom, to around the globe. Corporations promoting women are more profitable. The list is long. When women succeed, our country succeeds together.
