GIRLS ELEVATE is a subsidiary of Youth Elevate, committed and dedicated to building girls’ self-esteem, bridging the connection between parent and daughter creating sisterhood between young women, and elevating the consciousness of the next generation.
We believe that when a girl feels empowered in her own self, she will use that power to make a difference on the planet. She will use her leadership skills to follow her passion and purpose and not be influenced by the incessant pressures of society.
Our goal is to elevate mothers and daughters into their highest potential so we collectively learn a more confident way of living. We also see the value of sisterhood amongst girls so our programs bring these groups together for team building, trust, and collaborative exercises and programs.
What distinguishes Girls Elevate™ from others is our focus on the parent/daughter relationship; self-esteem; redefining masculine and feminine roles; giving back both locally and globally, fun, invigorating and mindful movement practices.
This is what we do:
- After school programs – held at Metta Yoga, Corte Madera, CA
Offer weekly session to girls integrating a weekly theme through movement, meditation, art projects, writing, round table connection, and collaborating.
- Camps and Retreats
It’s inevitable; our girls become women. It can be a time of potent emotions and radical changes. Girls Elevate weeklong summer camps and weekend retreats help them take their first steps towards womanhood with a tribe of like-minded mother’s and daughters. Our goal is to support our girls through this time. These first ever Rites of Passage retreats are designed to create a strong community of young women leading from a place of truth, integrity, inclusivity, kindness, and empathy.
Fundraise via yoga events and community outreach to promote mindfulness, compassion, empathy and environmental awareness. Choose a local and/or global organization that we come together in support via SEVA (self-less service). We do this through charitable events, team building and community service.
