New Non-Profit "Emmies Hope"
By grooveymom on February 15, 2010
Greetings blogher gals.....My business partner and I have started a new non-profit. What an exciting undertaking? About-Emmie’s Hope is a non-profit organization currently focusing on programs developed for girls in 7th and 8th grade. The program combines organizing a community service event with self-esteem enhancing, and mentoring. The goals of the programs encourage positive emotional, social, mental, spiritual and physical development for teenage girls entering high school.
Objectives -The objective of Emmie’s Hope is to educate and empower girls in their adolescent years by providing life tools that will allow them to make healthy decisions throughout their lives. Based on research, 7 out of 10 girls feel poorly about themselves. When girls think poorly about themselves they are more likely to fall into at-risk behaviors. Emmie’s Hope offers a proactive program that assists in preventing at-risk activities which include substance and alcohol use, eating disorders, early onset of sexual activity, sedentary lifestyle, depression, suicide attempts and confrontations with the juvenile justice system.
