FITGirl’s empowerment programs and summer camps provide lessons focusing on relationships, body image, self-esteem, goal setting and self worth in tandem with various physical fitness and nutritional activities such as yoga, self defense, meal planning, fitness, dance, hiking, boxing and more. Last year we received 45 scholarships applications from single parent homes (Over 42% of children living in single mother households in Nebraska are living in poverty). Unfortunately, we were only able to provide 18 scholarships to our summer camp due to lack of funding. You can help us change that in 2019!
Being physically active as an adolescent can help to protect against a wide range of health risks into adulthood. But being active also has many immediate benefits for girls, in particular for their mental health. There are many studies out that conclude especially among younger adolescent girls. Self-esteem is important for psychological well-being, positive body image, increased self-efficacy, and leadership skills. A high self-esteem also protects against depression, anxiety, loneliness, aggression problems, and high-risk behaviors like smoking and substance abuse.
However, as early as , girls begin to become more sedentary, their activity levels dropping by as much as 83 percent as they transition through adolescence.
FITGirl, Inc. can help young girls in our community discover the confidence to be the empowering women they are meant to be! Our goal for 2019 is to provide 50 girls in Nebraska a scholarship to our 3 night empowerment camp. You can be the difference in a young girl's journey. Your donation through fitness fundraising can make change possible.
