I AM STRONG
We want every junior high girl to be confident, competent and self assured.
We teach all girls that they are competent. We provide programs to help them feel empowered in their ability to handle life.
I MAKE A DIFFERENCE
The FUSIoN Project is a FREE after school program for junior high girls that creates opportunities for girls to celebrate who they are, to recognize their talents, and to find their voices. We want them to know that they are strong, important and that they can make a difference in the world around them.
Important numbers in the United States:
3.2 million children are bullied every year by age 14
1.5 million high school students suffer physical abuse from a partner
300,000 children are sex trafficked every year
Our research revealed that increased self-esteem decreased the potential for girls to become victims to all sorts of behavior ranging from bullying to trafficking. We do not want any girl to become a statistic. So girls get the chance to develop social skills, value their uniqueness, build character and diminish potential of victimization in a supportive, fun, and safe environment. All girls are welcome.
