We are empowering teens and creating the next generation of female leaders in Dallas, TX one girl at a time. Since 2016, we have partnered with the Fossil Foundation to strengthen girls at Denton High School. Training them to become coaches and mentors for younger girls in their community, our girl-only program encourages teens to be gamechangers on and off the court.
96% of teens enjoyed being active and playing sports
92% of teens demonstrated higher levels of grit
95% of teens increased their self-worth*
Trained in our sports, health and leadership curriculum, teens coach at workshops throughout the Dallas area while earning scholarship money for college. Every year, teens attend Leader to Leader interviews at top companies in Dallas including Fossil’s headquarters. They learn about different careers and explore what they want to accomplish after graduating.
To date, we have awarded more than $10,000 in scholarships to Dallas Teen Squad participants. Hear from the teens in our program:
“Girls in the Game gives me an opportunity to participate in activities focused on the betterment of young girls. There’s such a genuinely positive environment. I’m so grateful for the program.” -Alex
“It is truly an honor to be a part of Girls in the Game. We are constantly active, contributing our time to the community and youthful generation. I get to serve as a role model by encouraging, motivating and building confidence, modesty and character in a variety of eager and heart-warming middle school girls.” -Breanna
This year, we’re looking to grow our Teen Squad program by doubling both the number of girls involved with Teen Squad and the number of teen-led workshops. As we grow our programs in Dallas, we need your help more than ever. Together, through volunteering opportunities, fundraising and awareness events and social media, we will help empower the next generation of female gamechangers in Dallas.
