Get to Know Super 7 Girls
Super 7 Girls mission is simple - We help girls from under-resourced communities of color have superpowers (you read that right!). Now, when we talk about superpowers we don’t mean that in the metaphysical sense. When we discuss superpowers we are discussing a certain mindset. By helping girls build various skill sets that they need, they will feel emboldened, confident, smarter and…yep, you got it…superpowered. They will know that there is nothing that they are unable to conquer and that no challenge is too great.
So, you must be curious?!? How does one go about giving superpowers? We know that superpowers grow from consistent access to curriculum that focuses on education, health, financial literacy, policy, arts, leadership development, and global engagement and this consistent access helps the girls have a deep understanding of how their increased knowledge means a stronger ability to take on life’s challenges. We also know that their increased knowledge base disrupts the cycle of generational poverty and transforms the life outcomes and trajectories of the girls in our program. In essence, their superpowers enhance their overall well-being and helps them dream new dreams.
We are a non-profit organization that is committed to helping girls from under-resourced communities of color succeed. As an organization, we know that under-resourced communities are consistently falling behind and the cycle of poverty can have lasting effects on our community and our nation. In addition, girls from those communities face a unique set of obstacles as they transition to adulthood. Girls from under-resourced communities are at a substantially higher risk for negative economic, educational, and health outcomes and have a stronger likelihood of becoming pregnant before the age of twenty one.
But...we know that this does not have to be the narrative for girls from these communities. We fervently believe in the restorative ability of any community and with support the futures of these girls will not be determined by their circumstances. We can address the root causes of some of our worst societal ills by engaging these girls early and often. When girls are given a chance, they are more engaged and informed citizens, lead healthier families, have limited needs for social services and play a vital role in shaping the labor force.
Our social investment in girls is one that will reverberate through our immediate community, the broader community, the nation and the world. It is clear that with help, their potential is boundless.
And so our push for change has begun and our solution is simple. We can mitigate the negative outcomes associated with girls from under-resourced communities by engaging them in 7 different kinds of curriculum that will enhance the skills sets they need to succeed. Consistent access to curriculum that focuses on education, health, financial literacy, civics & public policy, art, leadership development and global engagement helps girls feel emboldened, confident, smarter and…yep, you got it…superpowered.
They will know that there is nothing that they are unable to conquer and that having the power over these different curriculum areas means that no challenge is too great. We also know that their growth in these areas helps disrupt the cycle of generational poverty. Their understanding of their superpowers means a reality where all the talents of these girls shape our understanding of what is possible. It also helps underscore the idea that every girl has a role to play in writing our future and with our help...she can play it.
