Why Girls With Ideas?
We believe that every girl has the right to feel good about herself, have her ideas heard, and have access to the best resources to help her do that.
The Girls With Ideas curriculum helps girls ages 9-13 discover their strengths, find their voice, and build resilience so they can be confident, creative leaders who have the skills to make ideas happen. Our curriculum takes girls through the process of coming up with an idea and making it happen and is grounded in research-based principles.
We work with girls at an age that research indicates girls start thinking about who they are and who they want to become. Girls with ideas become women with vision.
The Girls With Ideas Curriculum is different from any other curriculum. Here’s why:
We believe that confidence comes from trying, doing and working hard. Instead of just talking about leadership and ideas, our curriculum guides girls to select an idea that will improve their school or community and make it happen. Not only does this help put the skills they are learning into action, girls gain confidence from making it happen.
There is NOTHING out there that teaches youth how to harness their creativity and implement it. We see creative thinking as the most essential skill for a leader in today’s world and know it's important to emphasize that creativity is a skill that can be practiced, not a fixed character trait.
If you want to help girls with ideas become women with vision, we want to make it easy for you to do just that. There is no special training or webinar required to become certified to teach our curriculum. We have listed the curriculum at an accessible price and have a scholarship program available.
Our flagship curriculum! The Girls With Ideas Curriculum Starter Kit includes one Facilitator Guide and Idea Books and Idea Ink pens for five girls.
Have a group larger than 5? Add the additional idea books you need to your cart before check-out.
The Facilitator Guide includes 20 interactive 45-minute lessons that teach creativity, confidence and leadership skills by having the girls in the group select an idea to implement together. Ideas can range from putting on a play to starting recycle programming to starting a business!
Each Idea Book is full color and also includes an 'idea ink' pen. Girls use them both inside and outside of their idea groups to collect their ideas. There are prompts for journaling, coloring pages, and writing activities, and our leadership quiz where girls find out if they are an arrow, anchor, heart or lightning bolt leader.
