Great empowerment program for girls coming to Milford!

- By Rachel Howe, Milford Patch -

Be smart, be strong and be amazing! This program-designed especially for girls- gives them tools on how to do so. Erin Mahoney, the creator of Girl Power, identified a need for young girls to learn to love themselves and feel empowered. Aware that girls are "over exposed in today's society, surrounded by social media sights, and pressures of magazines to look a certain way" she wanted to find a way to teach girls to love themselves, and their bodies, at every stage.

Mahoney created Girl Power, a program designed to get girls excited about being strong, confident, independent and healthy. Girl Power is an empowerment program that teaches girls to 'find their power' through positive re-enforcement, self-discovery and teamwork exercises.

"Some of the weekly topics include "how to make good friends”, “how to deal with peer pressure”, “healthy eating” and “how to discover the power of you.'"

In Milford, the program is offered to girls in grades 1-2 at Brookside, grades 3-4 at Woodland and grades 5-7 at Stacy. Girl Power also has a 2-part series specially designed for Girl Scout, Brownie and Daisy troops.
