We Just Hosted The Biggest Anti-Bullying Assembly EVER!
FearlesslyGiRL celebrated our official US launch by holding the largest ever anti-bullying school assembly in history! Co-Hosted by FearlesslyGiRL Founder Kate Whitfield and FearlesslyGiRL Ambassador Madison Keys, we reached over 7,000 girls in 77 schools across 22 states and provinces, and over 17,600 girls online!
Thousands of girls participated in activities – online and off – throughout the assembly, designed to break down barriers, overcome fears, forgive each other and fearlessly take a stand against bullying. We are so thankful to Nike, USTA and Instagram for partnering with us to make it possible to begin creating a kinder Girl World across the Nation!
If you missed out on our live stream the good news is you can still host the assembly in your school, get access to all program materials plus the week long action kit, posters and follow up material!
What We Do
Our fun, interactive and inspiring half day FearlesslyKiND In School Summit is specifically designed to target the unique challenges girls face and provides them with the tools and confidence to create a kinder, more supportive Girl World. Girls participate in group discussions and activities designed to boost self-esteem and create a sense of sisterhood and support, and schools are left with extensive follow up support and activities to keep the message of kindness going throughout the year.
Our half day school program is a life changing experience for the girls in your school, designed to create a safe, conversational environment to help girls break down barriers, open up, share experiences, forgive each other, repair broken relationships and increase self-esteem, self-respect and self-worth.
We offer a 2 hour Jr Summit for girls in grades 5-8, a Sr Summit for girls in grades 9-12 and a Collegiate Summit for young women in college or university.
Our FearlesslyGiRL Chapters provide young women with a safe space to come together, share stories, discuss important topics, get advice, & make friends. We believe that girls need girls and sometimes, we just need a chance to get together and talk about the things that really matter. And that, loves, is why we created our Chapter program! Our goal is to unite girls across the country and around the world, inspire authentic confidence, and support one other to be kinder to ourselves and each other.
So…join the kind girl revolution with us?
As a Chapter Leader, you and your fellow leaders have the opportunity to create positive change, inspire the girls in your school and increase your leadership skills in the process by running meetings and school wide events. You’ll receive support, training & materials to run monthly meetings, activities, campaigns and events to boost self-esteem, sisterhood, and create a kinder girl world in your school & community.
