What does it take for girls to progress through the formative years, transition through teen years, and arrive at adulthood as women who are capable of giving themselves respect and love? The answer is simple. Girls need nurturing, mentoring, encouragement, and opportunities for positive experiences.
Through our “GYRLs” program, an acronym for “Giving Yourself Respect and Love”, 16Ways Foundation guides, teaches, and inspires girls to live productively, no matter their age or phase of life. We believe that by providing girls with diverse activities, examples, and experiences, they will develop positive self-esteem and awareness that will enable them to achieve their highest potential.
