The Ripken Foundation is kicking off Women's History Month by encouraging our future female leaders through our I'm GREAT program. I'm GREAT works with middle school-aged girls year-round and aims to positively impact them through female mentorship. This leadership program can be implemented at youth-based organizations and schools throughout the U.S. and is structured with a carefully crafted girls' curriculum that consists of six important life skills: Real, Reflective, Respectful, Responsible, Resilient, and Remarkable. These six lessons focus on different aspects of girls respecting each other and themselves.
In addition to the I'm GREAT curriculum lessons, the Ripken Foundation has created four additional fitness activities that help to round out the girls' program. These fitness-focused lessons can be alternated with the I'm GREAT lessons throughout the year to keep girls engaged and focused on creating a healthy, positive lifestyle.
