Men For GEN 2019 is a campaign now through Father's Day to raise funds for the Girls Empowerment Network (GEN).
GEN's mission is to ignite the power in girls by teaching them the skills to thrive and believe in their ability to become unstoppable. The organization's "Girl Connect" programming in schools serves as the foundation for fulfilling GEN's mission every year.
Girl Connect consists of self-efficacy building groups for girls in grades 3-12. The groups meet weekly on school campuses to participate in up to 20 empowering curriculum modules (1-2 hours per week, per semester). Curriculum topics include personal power, failure and resilience, boundaries, media literacy, goal setting, healthy dating and more. GEN staff customize each group's format to meet the unique needs of each specific campus and have produced incredible results for girls statewide. As one recent high schooler stated:
"GEN showed me the value of bravery. I have the mental and physical tools to seize any opportunity I want. I've learned that I'm fierce. GEN didn't give me courage; it revealed the courage I didn't know I had. I think every girl should have that opportunity. Don't you?"
Men For GEN 2019 is dedicated to raising funds in support of GEN and its Girl Connect groups. It only takes $100 to give a girl access to a month of Girl Connect programming, which reaches about 1,700 girls each year.
