I AM A G.I.R.L. Community Program

Bring Yvonne’s Heart I AM G.I.R.L. Team to Your Community

We would love for you to bring I AM A G.I.R.L. to your community! Yvonne’s Heart partners with schools and community based organizations to launch I AM A G.I.R.L. Teams throughout the United States. I AM A G.I.R.L. can be a new program in a community or our curriculum can be added to already existing programs.

I AM A G.I.R.L Teams consist of an Yvonne’s Heart Coach, One Community representative and 5-15 girl participants. Coaches are provided with an I AM A G.I.R.L Project Kit, online resources, trainings via webinar and Yvonne’s Heart staff support. I AM A G.I.R.L Teams meet weekly for 12-24 weeks as girls depending on the community needs. The I AM A G.I.R.L project is open to girls in grades 6-12.

What It Takes to Start a Team

  1. A liaison that is connected to the school or organization in the community. A liaison can be a community member, school faculty, organizational staff, etc.
