Female Empowerment

Empower HER

Building Strength, Confidence, and Courage in Teenage Girls

We all want our girls to feel confident, practice self-love and acceptance, and realize that she is forever worthy of love and belonging. We want our girls to have courage during big games, exams and performances, and to practice self-awareness and coping skills when life inevitably causes distress. 


Chances are that the teenage girl in your life wants the same for herself, and likely more! But what if growing up in the 21st century is even harder than it looks?

Margaret created this powerful, unique, 6 Week Workshop to support your teenager to not just survive the tough teenage years, but to realize her strength and soar! Check out the workshop breakdown below! 


Workshop Outline

Week 1: Cultivating a Healthy Relationship & Self-Awareness With Social Media

Girls will be empowered through learning exactly how algorithms work and will be able to explain how social media gets its users addicted. Additionally, girls will reflect upon how social media can impact their character and influence how they feel about others and themselves. 

Week 2: Developing Healthy Dating Relationships

Girls will receive important, relevant information around what Teen Dating Violence is, understand the prevalence of Intimate Partner Violence, consider what a healthy relationship looks like, describe the importance of boundaries and how to implement them & develop strategies to keep themselves & other girls safe!

Week 3: Cultivating A Healthy Body Image

Girls will gain a firm understanding of America’s ever changing beauty standard for women and girls throughout history. Girls will consider the Eurocentric Beauty Standard, reflect upon their own body image, be educated on the dangers of diet culture & contemplate how we can cultivate an unconditional love for our bodies.

Week 4: Cultivating Radical Self-Love & Self-Compassion Part 1

Girls will reflect upon the exciting, freeing concept of radical self-love, as they view, analyze and discuss an inspiring, relatable TED Talk. Girls will share the characteristics of unapologetic self-love as they contemplate and share how they can apply this liberating concept to their lives today. 

Week 5: Cultivating Radical Self-Love & Self-Compassion Part 2

Girls will be invited to practice curiosity and contemplation as they ponder and share quotes and sayings from powerful, female change-makers throughout history! Quote themes include unconditional self-worth, radical self-acceptance and the beauty of imperfection...all while building up other girls in the group! 

Week 6: Planning for the Future!

Girls will reflect upon previous week’s topics through viewing creative images and sharing personal convictions. Girls will end by envisioning what type of empowered, strong young women they want to be, and planning how can stay on track to achieve their goals! 


Why is This Important?


Research has revealed that 35-57% of adolescent girls engage in crash dieting, fasting, self-induced vomiting, diet pills, or laxatives. Additional studies indicate that 10 out of every 100 young women will struggle with an eating disorder.


Researchers who studied data on more than 10,000 adolescents found frequent social media use disproportionately affects teen girls’ mental health more negatively than that of teen boys.


According to the CDC, about 1 in 8 female high school students report having experienced sexual dating violence in the last year, and  26% of women who were victims of violence and/or stalking by an intimate partner… first experienced these or other forms of violence…before age 18.


Young, Parent

"My daughter participated in the Girl's Group through 6th and 7th grade. I was bowled over by how Margaret structured the meeting in a different way for this younger group and the maturity that blossomed again for my daughter who was previously shy about speaking out. I know my daughter will always hold her in a special place in her development and cannot recommend any interaction hosted by her highly enough."

Sarah, Student (13)

"I love Ms. Teague and all of the girls I got to know in the group. I was nervous at first, but Ms. Teague helped us all open up and talk about some of the challenges we face.


I't's nice knowing other girls are going through some of the same things as me."

Kayla, Student (16)

"My parents introduced me to Ms. Teague at a time that I was feeling depressed and lonely. I attribute a lot of me 'coming out of my shell' to Ms. Teague and the group. I have a lot more confidence, and I'm much better at small talk and making new friends.


I try to apply the concepts from our discussions in my everyday life, and I truly see a difference."
