HELP COURTNEY SUPPORT GIRLS INC.

WHAT IS YOUR ORGANIZATION'S MISSION?

 

Girls Inc. is an international organization that partners with schools and operates standalone offices to promote women empowerment for young women. Through programming, mentorship opportunities, and creating pro-girl environment, Girls Inc. is dedicated to helping young girls grow their confidence, independence and navigate social barriers.

WHY IS THIS ORGANIZATION SO IMPORTANT TO YOU?

 

I believe empowering women is still relevant to today's society. There has been so much work done in this space and we see the success of more women than ever before from excelling in the workplace, being the main financial providers for their families, to having majority enrollment in higher educational institutions, etc. However, being a mentor myself through other organizations serving the female population, there is still so much work to be done. Helping women feel strong and confident, showing them to be loud and present; to take up space. Having the opportunity to help a young person find their voice is work that I will always be passionate about. I believe Girls Inc. is dedicated to uplifting girls to truly be their best selves. In the Minneapolis chapter, they have even opened their services to those that identify as non-binary, a very relevant and necessary choice for our peers that are coming out as their true identities. They have programming for college readiness (my favorite!), for advocacy and change, those interested in STEM and so much more. There is something for all potential Ms. contestants to be a part of and I know we have mountains of knowledge we are eager to share with tomorrow's leaders!

HOW YOU CAN OTHERS GET INVOLVED?

 

We were all in their shoes. No matter our background, we know what it's like to be a woman growing up in our world. We had people in our life that influenced us to the paths we are currently on and I believe its important to be that person for those that come after us. Through mentorship, presentations on confidence, how to navigate college, their specific career journeys to name a few ideas, monetary donations, drives to collect feminine products, school supplies, hygiene items, etc. there is so much to be done that the contestants can get excited about!
