BIO Girls improves the self-esteem of adolescent girls through empowerment of self and service to others. Our12-week program combines life-skills lessons, positive mentoring and physical activity to help participants maintain a healthy self-esteem.
This is important for our communities because positive self-esteem is proven to contribute to better health, positive social behavior and decisions, is a predictor of academic success and is tied to job satisfaction in adulthood.
BIO Girls is committed to providing this important opportunity for low-income adolescent girls in our region, and granted 146 girls scholarships in 2020 in order to do so. Our goal is to extend our programming to the projected 210 girls we will have on scholarship in 2021, 57 of which will be in MN.
YOU have the power to help us give 57 girls that opportunity. Can you help us reach our goal?
