“The knowledge that is gained is everlasting.”

“GirlKind is an extraordinary program for young girls.  It is an esteemed mentoring program aimed to vitalize the lives of young girls by promoting self-confidence and humanity.  This is its second year at Jesse J. McCrary, Jr. Elementary and has touched the lives of over 40 girls.  The knowledge that is gained from the program throughout the various activities is everlasting.  I look forward to Jesse J. being a part of the Girlkind program for years to come.”

“Instrumental in our target elementary schools.”

“The GirlKind Project’s mission and philosophy is instrumental in our target elementary schools and complements our common goals to empower, encourage, and develop young people to be positive contributing members of society.”

“GirlKind is the type of program that every school needs in this day and age.”

“GirlKind is the type of program that every school needs in this day and age. The message that GirlKind presents to the students about love, compassion, and kindness is what a lot of students lack in our society. The students learn that it is okay to inspire and uplift their fellow classmates. What they learn is not limited and only useful for while they are in school, it is positivity that is needed in their homes and in their communities, as well.  GirlKind has risen the bar and standard to what is expected from young ladies at our school and is often used as a reminder for them to do the right thing. As a counselor, I am extremely grateful for the program and support it full-heartedly.”

“Thank you for making a great positive impact on the girls in our school.”

“Thank you, GirlKind Project, for coming to our school. I have seen a huge improvement in a lot of the girls’ self-esteem, behavior and mannerism. Thank you for making a great positive impact on the girls in our school.”

“180 Degree Turn”

“I wanted to express how thrilled I am with the GirlKind Project that you’re having at our school, for fourth grade girls. I’ve noticed a huge improvement on one student, in particular, who had a rough and difficult start of the school year because she was not behaving properly. Now, (after 12 weeks of the program) she’s done a 180 degree turn. She’s now kind, thoughtful and helpful. She’s actually become a role model for the other girls in my classroom. Her grades have improved and the way she speaks to everyone is completely different. I just wanted to thank you for having this project at our school and I hope it spreads to something worldwide.”
