Girl Power!

Award-winning, free empowerment program for middle and high-school girls. Girl Power is virtual for Spring 2021, meeting via ZOOM sessions.


Girl Power is an empowerment program for girls in middle school and high school. All Girl Power programs are facilitated by Community Impact Team of YWCCC.


  • Girls in 6th, 7th & 8th grade at Lamberton & Wilson Middle Schools. Girl Power gives girls the tools they need to achieve academic and person success, understand themselves and the world around them, develop future-oriented goals and recognize the influence of gender and racial stereotypes within society.
  • Girls are invited to participate during their resource period by the Guidance team at the middle schools.
  • Lamberton Middle School – Cycle days 1,3,5
  • Wilson Middle School – Cycle days 2,4,6
  • At Carlisle High School, Girl Power is for girls in 9th-12th grades. Girl Power at the high school level helps girls develop personal awareness, professional readiness and global competence through discussions on healthy relations with peers and adults, future-oriented goals, media literacy, online safety, diversity, equity, inclusion and thinking with a global mindset. Girl Power is a safe and inclusive space designed for honest dialog, encouragement, peer to peer mentoring and support.
  • At Carlisle High School, interested girls may sign up to participate during club period. Contact Mrs. Anderson with questions.
