  1. Vision Board Party

A vision board party is a fantastic way to help girls visualize their dreams and aspirations. Gather magazines, newspapers, and printouts of images that represent their goals, and provide scissors, glue, and a poster board for each girl. Encourage them to share their visions with each other, fostering a supportive and collaborative environment.

  1. Empowerment Circle

Organize an empowerment circle where girls take turns sharing their strengths, accomplishments, and future goals. This activity helps them recognize their potential and the power within themselves, while also fostering a sense of community and mutual support.

  1. The Compliment Jar

Set up a compliment jar where each girl writes a compliment about another girl in the group and places it in the jar. At the end of the activity, everyone gets to read the compliments they've received. This simple yet powerful activity helps build self-esteem and encourages kindness and appreciation among the girls.

  1. Role Model Presentations

Invite girls to research and create a presentation on a female role model who inspires them. It could be a historical figure, an athlete, a celebrity, or someone from their personal lives. This activity encourages girls to learn from strong, accomplished women and discover the qualities they admire and wish to emulate.

  1. Affirmation Art

Guide the girls in creating affirmation art by writing or painting positive affirmations on canvas, paper, or any other medium. Encourage them to use uplifting words and phrases like "I am strong," "I am brave," and "I can achieve anything." Once finished, they can display their art at home as a daily reminder of their worth and potential.

  1. Confidence-Boosting Charades

Turn a game of charades into a confidence-boosting activity by having the girls act out empowering scenarios, such as giving an inspiring speech, winning a competition, or standing up for themselves. This playful activity helps them practice and internalize assertive and confident behaviors.

  1. Community Service Projects

Organize a community service project that allows the girls to contribute positively to their neighborhood or town. This could include cleaning up a local park, volunteering at a food bank, or organizing a clothing drive. Empowerment comes from making a difference and knowing they have the power to create positive change.

  1. Personal Growth Journals

Provide each girl with a journal where they can document their thoughts, feelings, accomplishments, and aspirations. Encourage them to use the journal as a tool for self-reflection and growth. As they write about their experiences, they will gain a deeper understanding of themselves and their journey towards empowerment.

  1. Empowerment Movie Night

Host an empowerment movie night, screening films with strong female leads and positive messages about self-esteem, confidence, and personal growth. After the movie, facilitate a discussion about the themes, lessons, and takeaways from the film. This activity fosters critical thinking and helps girls relate to and learn from powerful on-screen role models.

  1. The Gratitude Circle

End your empowerment activities with a gratitude circle, where each girl shares something they are grateful for. Focusing on gratitude helps girls maintain a positive mindset and recognize the good in their lives, even when facing challenges.
