GoGirlGo! improves the social & emotional health and well-being of girls by combining sports and physical activity, leadership, & education.
This program builds healthy, active, and confident girls. GoGirlGo! helps girls understand the social pressures they face and teaches them how to make healthy choices for their body and mind. The curriculum is segmented in to three age groups: 5–7-year-olds, 8–10-year-olds, & 11–13-year-olds.
Topics such as self-esteem, body image, nutrition, leadership, bullying, emotions, diversity/respect, teamwork, smoking & substance abuse, confidence, stress management, and community service are candidly approached via the voices and true personal stories of four GoGirl characters and champion female athletes.
The courage, confidence, and character gained through the GoGirlGo! program are the very tools girls need to become the strong leaders of tomorrow.
