How can I empower tween and teen girls?
Tedi Serge is my guest today. Tedi started Girl Powerful® which is a youth empowerment 501(c)3 organization with her sister Sonya. Started in 2014, Girl Powerful is designed to give tween and teen girls the social and emotional learning tools to build a strong sense of self.
She took the opportunity of the lockdown to expand their reach to virtual nationwide programs in addition to their in person teachings. The sisters and their guest mentors are enjoying speaking with tweens and teens about social media and peer pressures and how to protect themselves.

ABOUT Girl Powerful
Today’s children need mental health tools in order to succeed in the future. Learning how to navigate societal expectations, manage emotions and communicate feelings with others is a big task to take on and can sometimes be an internal struggle. Since we live in a social media obsessed world, a majority of our girls express that they feel the need to be perfect. With that immense and unattainable pressure, they are experiencing mental health issues such as anxiety, stress, depression and low self-worth.
Girl Powerful Co-founders and real sisters, Tedi and Sonya Serge, believe it is best to learn social and emotional learning (SEL) skills at a young age to help children recognize consistent patterns of thoughts, feelings and behaviors that make individuals feel happy, valued and secure. Through their own journeys, Tedi saw the need for girls to have access to SEL from her experience as a classroom teacher and enrichment director. Sonya needed SEL personally, when she hit a wall and realized she was neglecting her own mental health and developing bad habits.
